Bike Patrol 9-1-10

Click on the link below and see where the Bike Patrol rode. It was only 17 miles, maybe more tomorrow. 30 maybe?? By putting a bicycle rack on the back of a patrol car, Ofcs. can move to other parts of the city quickly. Trying to stay within a manageable distance of the cruiser, they can still respond to other emergencies, as well as transporting their own prisoners.
