What is the Process for Abandoned Bikes?
Police regularly check for abandoned bikes on City property. If a bike looks abandoned then the bike is tagged with a 24 hour notice. If the bike is not removed within 24 hours then the Police remove the bike. The bike is stored at the Police Department for a minimum of 90 days. If the bike is not claimed within this period, then the bike is auctioned by the Police Department or donated.
