K-9 Unit & Bicycle Patrol

Bicycle Patrol

These Officers patrol on Bicycles in conjunction with their regular patrol duties. Bicycle Patrol allows an Officer to patrol areas which normally could only be reached on foot; it also allows for quick response and the ability to observe parking lots and all alleyways.

Canine Unit

The Canine (K-9) Unit is staffed by three officers and three Dogs. The dogs are trained in patrol functions including detection of narcotics and explosives.  Each dog receives hours of training each week as well as Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) certification.  In addition to their regular patrol duties, the Officers and their K9s attend many local events where they are very popular with children and the general public.
