Bike Security Tips

The Newport Beach Police Department (NBPL) recommends that all bike owners implement the following recommendations for keeping their bicycles secure:

–Invest in a high-quality bike lock & make sure you know how to properly use it.

–Never leave your bike outside overnight even with a good lock on it. Even good locks can be defeated if a thief has enough time and the right tools.

–Whenever possible, secure your bike to a fixed object in a locked garage or storage area.

–When you are out and about, try to park your bike where you can see it.

–Report your lost or stolen bike to the police as soon as possible.

–Register your bicycle (for free) at
