Bicycle Patrol Unit
What has two wheels, certified training, and a proactive attitude? If you guessed a Vermillion Bicycle Officer, you'd be correct! The VPD Bicycle Patrol maintains multiple IPMBA (International Police Mountain Bike Association) officers, each of whom has completed a minimum of forty hours of training specific to police cycling. IPMBA bicycle officers combine emergency vehicle operations, tactics, night operations, bike maintenance, and patrol procedures. The VPD bicycle officers have learned to ride like a pro, ride off-road, ride up and down stairs, and even how to fall as safely as possible!
