Bike Patrol

During the warmer months of the year, several officers from both the Patrol and the Auxiliary Services divisions patrol the Borough of Lincoln Park on mountain bikes. Each of our Bike Patrol Officers completed a bike patrol tactics course and they utilize the bikes as a proactive means of combating crime.

Bike Patrol is more advantageous than general vehicle patrol, because the bikes are stealthy, and small enough to access places that patrol vehicles cannot. Bike Patrol is a great means of Community Policing because it affords Officers the opportunity to work closely with citizens, which improves trust and community relations because Officers are viewed as more approachable.
