Licensing discourages theft and aids in identification, should a stolen bicycle be recovered. In addition, CMPD recommends that all major components be engraved with a driver's license number or state-issued identification number. This information should be recorded and saved along with purchase receipts, manufacturer's information, and a photograph of the bicycle. Do not use Social Security numbers for engraving, as they are very difficult for the police to research.
CMPD offers a free bicycle registration program for the Cal Maritime community.
