Find out if a bicycle has been reported stolen with s/n search(in Canada)
Have you seen a vehicle or bike that might have been stolen? If it has been reported to the police, they keep a record of this in the CPIC (Canadian Police Information Centre) database. You can search VINs, license plates, and bike serial numbers to confirm.
I thought this would be a valuable resource that this community could use to help combat bicycle theft.
If there is a 'hit' you are then instructed to notify your local police agency.
The non emergency number where I live, for the Vancouver Police Department, is 604-717-3321.
