Bike Patrol


Bike stock

The bike patrol is used for town functions, parades, crowd control, etc. where the police officer can perform law enforcement duties and, at the same time, be approachable to the citizens of Mattapoisett.

The concept of the Bike Patrol is a two-fold concept: A police function in which the officer can observe questionable activity that cannot be seen from the window of a police cruiser, and also placing the officer closer to the community, where interaction with the public occurs. Acting as good role models for the children in the town, police on bikes can educate aspects of bicycle safety and teach them how the police officer uses his bike on the job.
