Staff & Scheduling
Specially trained officers ride bicycles during patrols as directed by supervisors. Such patrols may be directed based on a particular crime concern or complaint or for special events, etc. Custom Bicycles
Police bicycles are custom designed for police work and feature a much lighter but stronger frame and components than a standard bicycle. Saddlebags on the bike ensure that officers are fully equipped for duty.
In order to serve on the Bike Patrol, officers must attend 40 hours of training through the Law Enforcement Bicycle Association. The training instructs officers on tactical uses of the bikes in a variety of situations. They also learn safety skills, such as how to deal with different types of terrain.
