Bozeman Police Department Donates Unclaimed Bicycles
The Bozeman Police Department has recently given away approximately 110 unclaimed bicycles from the City Impound to the Bozeman Bike Kitchen and HRDC. These bicycles were found abandoned within the city limits of Bozeman throughout the year, and are turned into the Bozeman Police Department. While we make every effort to return bikes to owners, many of them go unclaimed. We value our strong relationship with charitable organizations within our community such as HRDC and The Bike Kitchen, and the fact that we can donate them to a good cause conforms to our mission of developing community partnerships and service to our citizens.
Kristin Hamburg with HRDC says, "A bicycle is often the number one mode of transportation for many of our HRDC customers. With limited resources we are most often not able to provide a bike to those in need and we are grateful to the Bozeman Police Department for this opportunity."
HRDC is a Community Action Agency dedicated to 50 years of community action building a better community through innovation and leadership. HRDC offers programs and services in the areas of Housing, Food & Nutrition, Child & Youth Development, Senior Empowerment, Community Transportation, Home Heating–Energy–Safety, and Community Development.
The Bozeman Bike Kitchen is a cooperative cycling hub, empowering and educating the Gallatin Valley by refurbishing bicycles and promoting safe cycling for transportation and recreation.
Bozeman Police Department would like to return all unclaimed bicycles to rightful owners, and registering your bike with the city will help us do that. We encourage citizens to take the time to register your bicycles with https://www.bozeman.net/government/police/bicycle-information.
