The purpose of the Police Bicycle Patrol program is to enhance community relationships and to provide “directed patrols” in areas where bike patrols may have an impact. The Bike Patrol Officer also provides educational programs to the citizens of Berea and Madison County such as Bike Rodeos and Bike Safety.
The Bike Patrol is used for Community Policing activities through interaction with the community through children and citizen contacts. It works in selected areas of the City, special events, playgrounds and ballparks.
Bike Patrols are useful for crime reduction and for accessing areas not normally accessible by patrol car such as wooded areas. It is also useful in reducing crime in subdivisions and parks.
The Bike Patrol falls under the Patrol Division.
