National Bike Registry Offered to Campus Community

National Bike Registry

Bicycle theft has been on the increase. By registering your bicycle, you increase the chance of having a lost or stolen bicycle returned to you. Members of the University Police Department (UPD) are able to verify the ownership status of a bicycle if it is registered with the National Bike Registry.

On October 18, 2012, UPD detectives and cadets set up a bicycle registration booth in the Campus Village Quad for residents of Housing. Over 30 bicycles were registered during this successful event.

UPD is now offering free bicycle registration with the National Bike Registry to members of the campus community. If you are interested, visit UPD with your Tower Card to receive free registration materials.

Each member of the campus community may register one bicycle for free. Tower Card holders may purchase additional registration packets for $3.50. Non Tower Card holders may purchase registration packets for$7.00.

For questions regarding the Bicycle Registration Program, please contact the University Police Department  at 408 924-2222.

21st Annual Holiday Toy Program

21st Annual Holiday Toy Program

The University Police Department (UPD) is getting ready for the 21st Annual Holiday Toy Program. UPD is working with Lowell Elementary School to identify families that need assistance. This year, UPD will provide toys for children in each family, as well as a gift card for food.

Students, faculty and staff needing assistance with toys or food for the family this holiday season may bring their Tower Card to the UPD Lobby Service Area to receive an application. The offer is extended to the campus community, south of the main campus. Applications for the campus community are also available at UPD.

In the past, UPD has received generous assistance from members of the SJSU community. This year, we need your help once again. We invite you to donate toys, money, gift cards and/or your time to wrap toys on December 14, 2012.  

There are many ways to give. You may leave a toy in department bins, or bring it to UPD. You may also donate online, or, send a check to the Tower Foundation (Tax ID #83-0403915) to the address below. If you are donating through the Tower Foundation, please indicate that your donation is for the UPD Holiday Toy Drive.
