Prevent/Report Bike Theft
Register Your Bicycle!
Registering your bicycle increases the chance that your bike, if stolen, will be recovered and returned to you. Bike Index is the largest free online registry in the world. Go to the Bike East Bay website for comprehensive information on registering your bicycle, and steps you can take to prevent bicycle theft.
Reporting Stolen Bicycles
If your bike is stolen, please call the Oakland Police Department's non-emergency number, (510) 777-3333, TTY 238-3254 and report your bike's serial number, description (make, model, color, other defining characteristics), and describe the place and time the bicycle was stolen. If your bicycle was stolen and recovered by the Oakland Police Department, and if you file a report that includes your serial number, your bicycle will very likely be returned to you.
No Bicycle License or Registration Required
In December 2016, the City Council passed an Ordinance deleting Oakland Municipal Code requirements for bicycle licensing and registration. See Ordinance.
