The Pocatello Police Department has partnered with Bike Index, the most widely used and successful bicycle registration service in the world with over 128,000 cataloged bikes. Registering with Bike Index greatly increases your chances of recovering your lost or stolen bicycle by sharing its identifying information with thousands of riders, bike shops, pawn shops, law enforcement agencies, and other partners.
Why register with Bike Index?
Police officers recover numerous lost and stolen bicycles each year. Bike Index helps us connect you to your bike. If your bike is stolen, your serial number will already be recorded in your Bike Index account. If you lose your bike, we have the information we need to get your bike back to you.
How to register with Bike Index
Fill out the appropriate form below depending on whether your bike has been stolen or not. Be sure to upload a photo. You will receive an email from Bike Index asking you to confirm your registration in the system. Follow the confirmation instructions to activate your account. You can add more bikes under your account or add more pictures of your bike's distinguishing features.
Where is your bike's serial number?
On most bicycles, the serial number is engraved on the bottom bracket. Just turn your bike over and look between the pedals. Some bikes have multiple sets of numbers. It is best to enter each set of numbers/letters followed by a space between each group.
