police_bike_patrolSelected officers from the Prescott Police Department receive 40 hours of Patrol Bicycle instruction and upon completion; are capable of working Patrol as a Bicycle Officer. Bicycle Officers specialize in working localized areas; ongoing problems in our community as well as handling security for large gatherings and events.

Also, Bike Officers can be called upon to assist Detectives working on specific investigations that require additional manpower to further a case. The Bike Patrol can also become a resource to the Traffic Section when needed to help with traffic complaints and working special city events, such as Parades.
