Bicycle Theft Prevention and Recovery

We recommend the use of a U-Lock device rather than a chain or cable to protect your bike. Registering your bike also provides helpful information to law enforcement in the event your bike is stolen and increases the likelihood that your bike will be recovered. To obtain a bicycle license, contact University Police at 562.985.4101. The service is free. Please bring proof of purchase, if available.
