I was ecstatic when I got the email from Vancouver Police Department ( Said Joey Zhad.
VPD) that someone had found my bike. I'm very grateful to Constable Tjernagel. Folks over at VPD, project 529, Sidesaddle who registered the bike. Everybody involved.
The Coquitlam RCMP and VPD were able to use the Canadian Police Information Centre (
CPIC) to share information with each-other including but not limited to the serial numbers of stolen property. Using CPIC the police were able to work together to re-unite Joey Zhad with his prized bicycle.
Registering your bicycle serial number on project 529 is simple, provides riders, shops, police, schools, and cities with a common set of tools to become better organized then criminals.
If you are a victim of a bicycle theft, there are several tips that you can do when reporting the incident.
- Report the incident to your local police as soon as you notice the bicycle was taken;
- Register your bicycle’s serial number with project 529;
- Provide police with as much detail as possible about the stolen bicycle;
- Example: Serial numbers, after market additions, and photographs;
- Provide video surveillance, if available; and
- If you do not have video surveillance installed, think about installing some.
