Mountain Bike Patrol
The Rome Police Department's Mountain Bike Patrol has been a community policing operation since its inception in 1995. The objective of this unit is to patrol areas of the city that are not accessible to patrol vehicles. City parks, recreation areas, school grounds and the Mohawk River trail system are some of the locations that are patrolled by bicycle. The mountain bike patrol is a great benifit to both the community and the police department as it allows the police officer to interact directly with the public and also expands the patrol capabilities of the police department.
Members of this unit also conduct presentations and exhibitions for many community and civic groups throughout the city.
