Bicycle Patrol is comprised of two Nixa Police Officers. Every Bicycle Patrol Officer must complete a week long training session where they receive specialized instruction. From riding up and down stairways to cone courses and emergency dismounts, officers who complete the session are capable of a vast array of maneuvers on a mountain bike.
Bicycle Patrol is beneficial to the Nixa Police Department for the ease of movement the bicycle can provide within an urban setting, in large crowds and on congested or closed roadways. Bicycle Patrol is primarily utilized to supplement vehicle and foot patrols at special events by the Nixa Police Department.
