The illegal dirt bike/ATV riding on NL streets is extremely dangerous and beyond concerning. The New London Police Department needs your help to deter and stop it. We are asking community members and stakeholders for any information that can help us further investigate and identify the individuals illegally operating these dirt bikes/ATVs.

Take photos and/or videos (ONLY IF IT IS SAFE TO DO SO AND IT POSES NO SAFETY RISK TO YOU) and forward them to: publicportal@newlondonct.org. 

Also, you may submit information anonymously via the New London Tips 411 system by texting NLPDTip + the info to Tip411 (847411). Let us know who these riders are and where these bikes/quads are kept and we can attempt to control this dangerous activity before someone gets seriously injured or much worse.  We are all in this together. Thank you.
