There are many metrics that the University needs to evaluate the success of bicycle programming efforts. The University aims to improve and increase the rate of reporting on bike thefts and crashes to better understand changing trends for safety and security of bicycles on campus. Bicycle theft or crash or indecent driving behavior should be reported to the UIPD at the non-emergency number (217) 333-1216


Bicycle crashes and thefts can be reported to the UIPD at their non-emergency phone number, 217-333-1216.  We know that both crashes and thefts are under-reported, particularly more minor offenses such as minor bicycle-pedestrian crashes, or stolen parts such as wheels.
