Bike Patrol

Purpose


Bicycle patrol officers routinely provide supplemental patrol coverage in residential, recreational and business areas as well as providing patrol presence where conventional motor patrols are not able to go during special events such as parades and festivals.

Community Relations


Bicycle patrol officers provide a direct link to the community through one on one contacts with citizens during routine patrols and through community relations programs such as:
  • Bicycle safety seminars
  • Presentations to civic, neighborhood and school groups
  • Rodeos
