The Lombard Police Department is an advocate of registering your bicycle with the National Bike Registry. We check the database of the National Bike Registry when a bicycle is found in our jurisdiction.
Lombard has six adjoining police jurisdictions that a bicycle may end up with and many more that do not touch our borders. All communities are capable of checking this one database.
Many times, bikes are recovered and no owners are located. Most bikes recovered are then sold at auction per State statute. Our goal is to return property to their rightful owners as quickly as possible.
