Here at the Missoula Police Department, we receive hundred's of bicycles every year. These range from stolen and abandoned bicycles to lost bicycles. Because of the sheer volume of bicycles recovered, we utilize volunteers to assist in transporting them back to the police department.
If you know of an abandoned bicycle, you can call 406-552-6312 or contact us online. We will send people to pick it/them up as schedules permit. Our volunteers will not go on private property to retrieve a bicycle unless the property owner/person in charge is making the request.
