The MSU Police recommend the following theft prevention tips:

1. Register your bicycle online with the MSU Police so pertinent information is on file.

2. Secure your bicycle with a strong reliable U-lock. Secure it to a bicycle rack. Do not lock your bike to meters, sign posts, or handrails.

3. If you have a “quick release” front wheel, remove and secure it to the rear wheel and frame then attach it to a bicycle rack with a U-lock.

4. Know and write down your serial number, make and model. (**Need this information to be entered into the Law Enforcement Information Network.)

5. Engrave the frame of the bicycle with a unique identifier, such as initials. This should be visible.

6. If you observe suspicious persons and/or activity, call the police.

Always Lock Your Bike!
