When a bike is found abandoned in the city, the Battle Ground Police Department recovers and safeguards it while Emily, the department’s Property & Evidence Technician, searches stolen bike reports and bike registrations to find its owner. Emily loves to reunite people with their property, but bikes are often left unclaimed because she is unable to identify its owner. In just the last year, the police department has recovered and placed about 30 bikes in storage.
In Battle Ground, unclaimed bikes are eventually removed from storage and donated to a non-profit organization that distributes bikes to kids who would not have one otherwise. If you think your bike might be in storage with the police department, please contact us.
