Bicycle Patrol

Police bicycles are used to patrol special events, city streets, private property and other areas not easily traversed by foot. They have a positive impact on crime reduction and increase community policing efforts and officer mobility.

  • Burglary patrol.
  • Parking violations.
  • Patrolling high-density housing areas.
  • Proactive enforcement for other Street Crimes.
  • Problems particular to the City of Cottonwood.
  • Special Events.
