RCMP urges Kelowna to register bicycles on line

We've seen a big increase in bicycle thefts around Kelowna.

And now there's an app called Project 529 that allows you to register bikes usng  photos, identifying markings and serial numbers.

Kelowna RCMP Superintendant Brent Mundle says, "The important part of this is it allows us as the police when we recover bikes, we can identify who the owner is and return it or in some cases, actualy demonstrate that the bike has been stolen even if it hasn't been reported."

You are being encouraged to use the app and register your family bikes as soon as possible.

The app again is called Project 529.
