The Southern Regional Police Department operates a seasonal bicycle patrol. The bike unit is part of the community policing program and is used to supplement patrol in many public functions and activities. Bike officers have completed specialized training and are members of the International Police Mountain Bike Association (IPMBA).
Bike officers patrol congested areas, business districts, carnivals, parades, Halloween details, and car shows. The York County Heritage Rail Trail passes through our jurisdiction and bike officers do periodic patrols of the rail trail and parking areas. The bike officers also assist with local bike derbies and safety training events for kids. Helmet usage, proper maintenance, and safe riding skills are taught and demonstrated.
