Police have come up with a new idea to help people get their stolen bicycles back.
Officer Istvan Kovacs with the Shelbyville Police Department is asking that when city residents buy a new bike, that they come to the police department to register it. That way, if the bike should be stolen, police would have a way to identify it if it is found.
"We pick up two or three bikes a month, and we put them into storage and then they just pile up," Kovacs said.
