Rapid City Police Department Creates Bike Patrol Unit

The Rapid City Police Department has created a bike patrol unit, KOTA reports. Lieutenant Mark Eisenbraun is in favor of this new unit, saying it makes the police department more approachable and puts the officers in a position where they can see and hear things better than if they were in a patrol car.

Officers in the bike patrol unit first had to pass a test of state laws.

The bike patrol unit currently rides through summer and early fall, but Eisenbraun is hoping to expand the unit next year.
