Bicycle  Patrol

Tesdahl with bikeThe Moscow Police Department has dedicated officers trained for bike patrol. Bike officers give safety talks to community member organizations upon request. Bike teams are used for both patrol and special events.   The Operations Division currently has two electric-assist bikes (E-bikes) to be more effective and efficient while on bike patrol. The ability for bike officers to respond to events in areas closed off to vehicle traffic makes them a valuable tool for regular patrol and emergency responses.

These officers enhance regular patrol officers and provide citizens an opportunity to interact with officers on a more personal level. All of the officers have been certified through the Law Enforcement Bicycle Association (LEBA) as bicycle patrol officers.
