The Concord Police Department Bicycle Patrol unit currently is utilized during large functions as well as during normal patrol shifts (weather permitting). An officer on a bicycle is more accessible to the public than an officer in a cruiser. The bike officer can maneuver in and out of traffic and crowds of people a lot easier than an officer in a cruiser can.
The Bicycle provides for a more visible and approachable officer creating new opportunities for positive interaction between youths and the police department. It’s used in community events such as the Patriot’s Day Parade, escorts and other community activities.
