CRIME PREVENTION TIP

As you will read in todays Watch, bicycles will be a popular gift given by thieves this year. Often times, bicycle thieves will exchange their gift of a bicycle with a drug dealer. These bicycle thieves do not care about the make, model, color or value of your bicycle they only care about stealing enough value to trade fro their drug of choice. Do not aid them in the support of their habit. Always lock your bicycle with a quality u-lock to a secured bicycle rack and make sure your bicycle is registered with UT Parking and Transportation Services.
