Bicycle Patrol

Responsibilities & Activities
During the summer months, trained Police Department officers of the Bike Unit patrol the village parks, streets, and business district. Two electric bikes are part of the patrol and allow officers to also ride the bikes at night.

While on patrol, the police officer is available to respond to and investigate accidents, enforce traffic laws and parking regulations, and prevent crime and criminal activities by being visible and available. Bike Patrol helps the officers get closer with the community and speak with the kids on bicycle safety. Throughout the season, the Bike Patrol participates in block parties, bike rodeos, and parades.
