Official Bike Registration Station Program

March 3, 2010

With the increased popularity of cycling in recent years and the approaching bike season, retailers, colleges and police departments are looking to offer additional services at upcoming rides, clinics, safety fairs and other local events. Here’s where the “Official Bike Registration Station” program by National Bike Registry (NBR®) – the nation’s largest bicycle database and recovery service – comes into place. The program includes free and fundraising opportunities and helps highlight participants in the local community.

NBR bike registration packs (retail $10) are available to retailers to offer with bikes they sell or take in for repair and to law enforcement and non-profit organizations to provide to their community or use as a fundraiser at up to a 60 percent wholesale discount. The pack registers one bike for 10 years and includes the NBR tamper-proof ID label for the bike and a bonus BoomerangIt label for a bike accessory, another bike, or a portable electronic item, as well as instructions how to apply the label and register in the NBR database.

If your budget is limited, NBR provides free bike registry forms, educational flyers, posters and “Official Bike Registration Station” window decals. Public relations support is also available to designate participants as the place in their neighborhood where people can register and protect their bikes. Police departments receive free access to the NBR database to check on recovered bikes.

Recent participants in the program include Yale University, Rochester Institute of Technology, Marshall Police Department, Santa Monica College, Cranford Police Department, Trikke Tampa Store, The Bicycle Cellar, Outskirts Bike Shop & Outdoors, and All3Sports.com among many others. For more information or to join, please contact nbr@boomerangit.com or 800-848-BIKE.

University Police Department Has a Gift for City’s Residents-Free National Bike Registry Protection

November 12, 2009

The CSU Channel Islands Police Department in Camarillo, CA, along with the neighboring Community of University Glen have teamed up with National Bike Registry (NBR®) to offer local residents a free way to protect their bicycles, in case they are stolen. The launch of the program is particularly timely, since new bikes are always popular holiday gifts.

The Channel Islands Police Department and University Glen are giving away an NBR bike registration kit (a $10 retail value) to any bike owner in the community who requests one. The Police Department and University Glen will be distributing the free kits on a continuous basis to current and new home owners/renters, at the police station and the university, as well as at community events. Students can obtain an NBR bike registration kit from the Police Department, the University Bicycle Kitchen club, the University Glen leasing office and the new Student Union opening on the first of the new year.

The NBR kit includes a 10-year NBR registration, a special tamper-resistant, serialized security label for the bike, and a bonus label that gives the user BoomerangIt Lost & Found Return Service for cell phones, PDAs, laptops, cameras or other valuable gear, also for 10 years. Bicycle owners simply apply the labels from the NBR bike registration kit, then register the serial number and description of the bike in the NBR secure database. The finder of a bicycle, either the police or a Good Samaritan, calls 800-848-BIKE or accesses the NBR website at www.nationalbikeregistry.com to trigger a notification to the owner.

NBR is the only national bike registry system and is searchable by police departments nationwide so they can track down the rightful owners of the bikes they recover, no matter where the bikes may be recovered. This gives bike owners a better chance of getting their stolen bikes back.

For more information, contact the CSU Channel Islands Police Department at 805.437.8444 or kevin.medley@csuci.edu.

Citizens from around the country can obtain the NBR registration kit at participating retailers, police departments, or online at http://www.nationalbikeregistry.com and www.boomerangit.com. If you are a police department interested in offering NBR protection, e-mail us at nbr@boomerangit.com.
