RCMP Partners with 529 Garage to Help Prevent Bicycle Theft

To help prevent bicycle theft, the Northeast District RCMP is teaming up with 529 Garage - a mobile app used for bicycle theft prevention.

This is the second year of the partnership to provide the service to the Acadian Peninsula in New Brunswick, Canada.

Add a Photo and Serial Number of Your Bike to the App

Bicycle owners can register their bikes with the 529 Garage app. This includes adding a photo and the serial number. Doing these things can help prevent thefts.

How the 529 Garage App Works to Prevent Theft

In the case a bike is stolen, the bicycle owner triggers a mobile app alert to notify others in the area with the 529 Garage app. If another person sees the stolen bike, a report can be posted about the location on the app.
