The Prince George Association for community living has joined a partnership with the Bike Registration App.
Prince George benefits from having a 529 garage bicycle registration, reporting, and recovery network because officers will almost always be able to get it back to their owner.
When one of the hundreds of recovered and unregistered bikes cannot be reunited with its owner, it goes to the not-for-profit organization, AiMHi.
AiMHi staff and clients clean-up and fix the bikes so they can be re-sold to the public through their Saturday bike sales from late May to September.
Over 200 bikes have been registered by AiMHi this year, the partnership will help return more stolen bikes to their owners and help stop bike theft.
“This is a fantastic boost to the Detachment’s bike theft prevention program,” says Cpl. Craig Douglass, coordinator of the program in Prince George. “AiMHi is showing their commitment to this community, their clients and to bicycle owners. Having AiMHi as a partner means that more recovered bikes will be reunited with their owners.”
The last bike sale of the season will be held tomorrow from 11am-4pm at their Kerry Street location.
