The University of Wyoming Police Department (UWPD) will conduct its annual bicycle roundup on campus starting Thursday, May 21.
Any bicycles that appear to be abandoned or are unregistered are subject to impound.
Bicycles can be registered at the police department, located at 1426 E. Flint St. Although bicycle owners can stop by anytime to register, it is recommended they bring their bikes to the front lobby between 8 a.m.-5 p.m. The registration fee is $5, payable by cash or check.
“There are several reasons to register your bike, including university regulations,” says UW Police Chief Mike Samp. “However, the most beneficial reasons are theft deterrence and recovery. When you register your bike, we gather all the necessary information needed to file a theft report, including the serial number. If the bike is stolen, then that information is entered into a national database where pawn shops and other law enforcement agencies have access.”
Bicyclists whose bikes get picked up during the roundup should call UWPD at 766-5179 to claim their bikes. They will have to pay a $5 impound charge and a $5 registration fee, if their bikes are unregistered.
With the unexpected departure of students from campus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, additional accommodations will be made this fall to return abandoned property to the rightful owners. Those who knowingly left campus without their bicycles are encouraged to call UWPD to provide a description and last known location of their bicycles.
All impounded bicycles that are unclaimed are sold at UWPD’s annual public auction, usually held during the first part of September.
