Police Bike Patrol Unit Patrols Where Cars Can’t
When the weather warms up, the St. Charles Police Department Bike Patrol Unit gets rolling. The bicycle patrol unit is an “as needed” volunteer unit that was started in 1993. The bicycle patrol is prominently used during the summer at highly populated city events that can be navigated easier by bike. The patrol provides an additional level of support for areas where cars are unable to go. Each bike is equipped with a small pack that contains a first aid kit, flashlights, and reflective vest in the event traffic assistance is needed.
