The Bike Patrol was reinstated in the spring of 2018. The main goal of the assignment is to break down barriers between police and the public. Removing the patrol car allows officers to actively engage with people in our community.
Bike Patrol Officers are responsible for patrolling special events, such as:
- Concerts at Oak Mountain Amphitheatre
- Hockey games at the Pelham Civic Complex & Ice Arena
- Fire on the Water at Oak Mountain State Park
They also participate in targeted patrols at shopping centers, recreational areas, and neighborhoods.
Bike Patrol officers are certified through the International Police Mountain Bike Association.
