About Bike Patrol
An Officer must complete a week long training course where they receive specialized instruction. Some of the instruction includes riding up and down stairways to cone courses and emergency dismounts. Officers who complete the session are capable of a vast array of maneuvers on a mountain bike. Currently Officer Bappert is the Department sole Bike Patrol Officer.
History of Bike Patrol
An idea that began in England around 1818 has came a long way to where it is today. Like an Officer walking the beat, Officers on bike patrol effectively interact with the community and still respond to emergency calls for service. You will often see Officer Bappert on bike patrol during parades, special events, and summer nights. You may have even saw Officer Bappert on Halloween!
