Bicycle Team

The Sheriff's Bike Patrol is a unit in the Patrol Division consisting of members of the Patrol Division. Each person is fully equipped with their own bicycle and riding equipment, and their patrol vehicles have special mounts to enable deputies to take the bicycle on patrol. Our goal is to provide the public and youth with a more personable outlook of the police, as well as provide extra patrols to areas of high crime during all times of day and night.


Our primary focus will be those neighborhoods, towns, and areas that fall in the jurisdiction of the Sheriff's Office, however we welcome requests to assist with community gatherings, parades, athletic events, etc.

Bike Safety

The Bike Patrol Team is available for Bike Safety programs as well as Bike Rodeos for your event or organization. Our Bike Safety program is appropriate for ages 4-12 and last 30-60 minutes. Participants will learn basic bike safety, helmet fitting, rules of the road, and other important information.

Bike Rodeo

The Bike Rodeo is a more active program that incorporates the Bike Safety program along with hands-on activities. Participants in a Bike Rodeo bring their own bicycles for real time practice in the skills that are taught. The Bike Rodeo usually last about 2 hours and requires space to ride bicycles as well as some adult supervision.
