Minneapolis Bicycle Registration
Register your bicycle with the Minneapolis Police Department!
It's free, and will help us return your bike if it is recovered after begin lost or stolen
Every year, thousands of bikes are lost or stolen in Minneapolis. Many of them are recovered. Yet, because of a lack of proper identification, only a small percentage are ever returned to their owners.
The Minneapolis Police Department has created an easy, online way to register your bicycle. You will need to include your bike's serial number, a description of the bike--make and model--and your contact information. Use this link to register your bike and in the event it is lost or stolen, and the MPD, other agencies or city departments recover it, we will be able to return it to you quickly.
Register online any time
Call 311--be sure to have your bike's serial number ready
311's app: minneapolismn.gov/311 to register using your smart phone
It could increase the chances of a stolen or lost bike being returned to the rightful owner--recovered bikes can be checked against our registered bikes database
It's easy--just a few minutes!
Registration could assist in identifying incapacitated riders without IDs (like kids)

Thoni Award Nominations Sought
The Thoni Award is an annual award honoring a graduating senior student from the adult undergraduate program (in Minneapolis or Rochester) whose actions, commitments, and future aspirations most profoundly demonstrate a commitment to Augsburg's motto of "Education for Service." The award (including a plaque and honorarium) is announced at the June commencement ceremony.
Faculty and staff are asked to nominate students for this award by May 24, 2013. In making a nomination, the nominator(s) should provide their name and the name of the student being nominated, and write a brief nomination entry that includes a response to the following:
1. Describe ways in which s/he has been called to service and how s/he has acted on this call (consider service to the college, faith community, neighborhood/community and/or family);
2. As you consider the nominee's background and future aspirations, please describe how the nominee's education as an adult learner will shape his/her service to others, in one or many roles (community member, parent, employee, citizen, etc.).
Nominations may be sent to Judi Green in the Dean's Office, firstname.lastname@example.org
