Bike Registration

Over two million bicycles are stolen every year - or one bike every 30 seconds. While stolen bicycles are frequently recovered by law enforcement, it's often hard to identify the bike's rightful owner.

The UCF Police Department has partnered with Protech DNA to use their technology to help protect the property of our students, faculty and staff.

Biclye DNA labels

This high-tech label is placed on the bicycle and has a unique personal Identification number (PIN) that links the bicycle to its actual owner.

Microscopic Dots

Bicycle DNA labels have microscopic dots embedded into the adhesive and each dot is etched with a PIN. If a label is removed from the bike, the adhesive remains on the bike. allowing law enforcement to easily returns the bike to its owner if its recovered after being lost or stolen.
