Bike Theft Task Force

The Portland Police Bike Theft Task Force is partnering with the bicycling community to focus efforts on reducing bike thefts in the city through education, awareness and enforcement. 

Unfortunately, bikes are stolen in Portland every day; these thefts are often fueled by drug use and addiction--the bikes are sold to drug dealers in exchange for drugs.

The Police Bureau takes reports on stolen bikes, but without any means of identification (such as serial number), it can be difficult to have probable cause to seize a stolen bike as well as return recovered bikes to their rightful owners. The PPB Property Room has hundreds of bikes that are not able to be returned. Therefore, we recommend registering your bike with either of our partners: Project 529 or Bike Index.

There are also some valuable prevention techniques that you can use to help prevent your bike from being stolen.
