Bike Patrol


Bike patrol unit at a childrens biking clinic

The bike patrol unit is an assignment within the Patrol Division, and works cooperatively with the Parks, Lakes and Trails unit to increase visibility and help deter criminal activity within our parks and communities. Each season, our bike patrol deputies put on hundreds of miles patrolling our communities, regional parks, and expansive trail system.


In addition to their patrol duties, they also take part in many community events including Night to Unite, bike safety camps, Dakota County Fair security, parade details and Special Olympic Law Enforcement Torch Run. Deputies assigned with the bike patrol are certified as police cyclists through the International Police Mountain Bike Association.
