Question: Why License a Bicycle? How do I obtain a Bicycle License?
Answer: If a bicycle is registered with the La Junta Police Department it benefits the owner in a lot of ways. If the bike is lost and located we can return it to its proper owner. This prevents people taking possession of a bike that is not theirs. Also if a bicycle is stolen it can assist the officer's in easily identifying the bicycle when it is contacted. When licensed the bike receives a numbered peel proof sticker. To obtain a license bring the bicycle and $1.00 to the La Junta Police Department Monday thru Friday 8-5pm.
