Bicycle Patrol

Policy Center Resource

Bicycle patrol officers are an important component of an agency's strategy for accomplishing its enforcement objectives due to their mobility and stealth as well as their ability to facilitate a variety of law enforcement and crime prevention operations. They are also advantageous in community policing efforts because they are generally perceived as less authoritarian than officers in police motor vehicles.

These documents provide guidance on the use, utility, and deployment of police bicycles and the general management of police bicycle operations.
