City Police Now Offer Bike Registration

Free bicycle registration is now being offered by the Cape Girardeau Police Department. For citizens of Cape Girardeau, bicycles that become lost or stolen can be readily identifiable and returned to their owners with this registration. Bicycles for which ownership cannot be determined and are not claimed are sold in an annual city auction.

Your bicycle’s information along with your contact information will be entered into a department bicycle registration database.  A bicycle registration sticker with an identifying number will be placed on the bicycle by an officer.

Citizens can register their bicycle Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. by contacting the Community Service Officers and setting up a time to schedule the registration.  They can be reached at 573-335-6621 ext. 1243 or ext. 1257.  Citizens can also print out the registration form from the police department’s website, www.cityofcape.org/police.  Bring the completed form along with your bicycle to the police department at the time scheduled by the Community Services Officers.
