KOIN TV covers new police/tech bike theft partnership

Posted by on December 1st, 2009 at 7:00 am

As we mentioned in a story last week, we’re working with the Portland Police Bureau and the guy behind StolenBicycleRegistry.com (Bryan Hance, who happens to live in Portland) to catch more bike thieves.

If all goes according to plan (which it should), local police officers will have live, up-to-the-minute access to all stolen bikes listed both here on BikePortland and on StolenBicycleRegistry.com right in the front seat of their patrol cars.

Watch the video coverage that ran tonight on KOIN-TV (Portland CBS affiliate):
