Protect Your Bicycle From Theft
- Always secure your bicycle frame to a bicycle rack or stationary object with a alloy- hardened U - shaped lock (even if you're only going to be gone just a minute). Most locking cables and chains, regardless of a hardened case, can be cut with bolt cutters.
- Immediately report suspicious person(s) / activity in vicinity of bicycle racks.
- Register your bicycle with University Police in person at the University Police station. Registration serves as a deterrent to theft and aids in the recovery of stolen bicycles. At University Police, community members may also register their bicycles with the Florida Atlantic Police Department.
- When you lock and leave your bicycle, try to choose a public place where passers-by will notice a thief.
- When possible, release the front wheel and secure together with the back tire. Remember to also secure removable seats.
- Keep records including serial number, description of bicycle and bill of sale. If your bicycle is stolen, immediately notify University Police.
- Put your bicycle in storage when not in use. Bicycles are prohibited from being stored in corridors, hallways, stairwells, lounges or any thoroughfare.
