National Bike Registry
Since 1984, NBR has been helping identify and return stolen bikes (and scooters) to their rightful owners. More than 48% of stolen bicycles are recovered every year by law enforcement, but only  5% are returned since they have no way to determine ownership. When a bicycle is labeled and registered in the NBR database, it can be easily identified by police and returned to its rightful owner. The NBR computer database is dedicated exclusively to bicycle registrations and is available FREE to law enforcement nationwide.

Click Here to register online, register by phone at 800-848-BIKE or print the registration form from the website and return it, with your check, to the National Bike Registry. 

Community Watch
Community Watch is a crime prevention program that involves all aspects of the community working together and assisting law enforcement to discourage crime. A passionate and organized Community Watch Group (CWG) can make a significant difference in the prevention and reduction of crime in their neighborhood.

The Downtown Long Beach Associates, in coordination with the Long Beach Police Department, developed this Starter Kit to make it as easy as possible to organize a CWG in your neighborhood. Please contact Steve Be Cotte, Residential Coordinator at 562-436-4259 to schedule a meeting to start the process of setting up your own CWG.
