The Bicycle Patrol Unit consists of seven officers specially trained in bike patrol operations. The Bike Unit augments the Patrol Division; offering a “greener” more approachable alternative to vehicle patrol. The Unit provides additional patrols to parks, business districts and shopping centers where the use of a patrol vehicle is limited.
The Bike Unit also provides traffic safety and crowd management during special community events such as our annual Cinco de Mayo Parade and Fourth of July Celebration. Officers assigned to the bike patrol receive specialized training in police bike patrol operations. In addition to the above services, the Bike Patrol Unit is designed to respond to the specialized patrol needs identified by our community.
Upon request, the Bike Patrol Unit will provide bike patrol presentations to grammar schools within the City of San Pablo. If your school would like a Bike Officer to give a presentation, please call (510) 215-3130.
