It’s FREE, easy to do and can help you get your bike back in case of it being tampered with or theft. For more information, contact FSUPD at (850) 644.1388 or (850) 644.3660.
When parking your bike, make sure to secure it with at least one form of lock.
Your bike will be confiscated by FSUPD if secured to anything other than one of the many bike racks located around campus (Bike Map), as this could block access to walkways and entrances as well as pose hazards for students with visual impairments.
