The Bike Patrol Unit is a voluntary, part-time unit whose officers successfully completed a grueling police bike certification course.
Bike Officers are more accessible to the public while being highly mobile. They have the "stealth" advantage to ride into a crime scene unnoticed.
The Bike Patrols are very effective for special events where their maneuverability and speed are assets in areas of high volumes of pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
The Unit complements the department's community policing efforts.
