Bike Patrol Unit

STCC Police Officers can be seen patrolling the campus in their bike-riding gear when weather allows.  With the addition of bicycle patrol, Officers are now a more visible deterrent to crime with community policing.  Patrolmen can work more closely with crowds than is possible from inside the STCC police interceptor vehicle.

Each officer serving with the Bicycle Patrol Unit must complete extensive formal training in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Department of Public Safety. Officers attend the International Police Mountain Bike Association Basic Police Cyclist certification program. The course involves educational and practical instruction on the operation of mountain bikes, fitness, nutrition, techniques, and application of community policing strategies.
