The Dalles Police Department Bicycle Registration
We strongly suggest that everyone register his or her bicycles with the police department. The service is free and helps the police department return bikes that are turned into us to the rightful owner. Approximately sixty bicycles a year are turned in to the police department. If we are unable to match them with their owners, the bikes are sold at auction.
You do not need to bring your bicycle to the police department. Bring the make and model of the bicycle, serial number, color of the frame, color of trim, color of seat, how many speeds, type of bike (i.e. Mountain bike, free style, BMX type), and any added extras.
We will issue a license to adhere to your bicycle and fill out a registration card, which we will put in our computer, and also give you a copy for your records.
