Shield your bike
The tamper-resistant 529 Shield acts as a deterrent, warning would-be thieves to keep their paws off your bike, and making it easier to find you if your bike is recovered.
Do not forget to add a shield to your bike frame. When a stolen bicycle is recovered by Long Beach PD, having a shield on the frame is very important because it allows PD to look up the ID number of the shield in nationwide data base and contact the owner. You can pick up a bike shield at one of our participating bike shops for free while supplies last.
Enlist the community
If your bike is stolen, start an alert to let other bike owners know.
California law enforcement agencies recover thousands of missing bikes every year, but have no way to determine who they belong to. By registering your bike with the City of Long Beach, you'll help law enforcement agencies identify the ownership of your bike if it's found. You'll also have a record of all of the details of your bike to file proper police and insurance reports.
How to Report a Bike Theft
If your bike has been stolen, it's important to report it to Long Beach Police Department in addition to marking it as stolen in the 529 Garage. The police report helps our community better understand the scope of the problem and will also be required to retrieve your bike when located.
Start an alert on your bike on the 529 Garage website or app.
If your bike isn't registered, register it first with all the information that you have about your bike, and then start the alert.
