City of Gulfport Skate Park
Pinellas County, Florida has among the highest bicycle injury and fatality rates in the United States. For this reason, the Gulfport Police Department works hard to ensure the safety of those using bicycles on public roadways, especially children.
Bicycle Patrols are conducted throughout the city to provide more direct contact with citizens as well as for officers to be able to patrol areas more discretely.
These patrols are often done during special events, including "Art Walk", the first Friday and third Saturday of each month on Beach Blvd, as well as various other festivals. Patrols are also common during holidays, and other periods of high pedestrian traffic at the waterfront.
Bicycle patrols are effective at bringing the police officers in more direct contact with citizens, giving them the ability to see and hear things an officer in a car may not be able to.

Stolen Bicycles / Bicycle Registration
Bicycles can be registered at city hall, in person (with the bicycle present) for $.25
Registering your bicycle makes it possible for the police to identify a bicycle as yours if it is lost or stolen, and recovered. Because so many people do not register their bicycles, when stolen bicycles are recovered, or a bicycle is found, it is often impossible to determine who the owner is, and many of these bikes end up in lock-up at the police department and never find it's way back to it's owner.
Please register your bicycle, so that this doesn't happen to you. If your bicycle is recovered or found, we would like to be able to return it to you.
