UKPD working to give every officer bicycle training

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ)-The UK Police Department is on its way to ensuring every officer has bicycle training.

The department posted a photo Saturday showing the latest group of officers to finish the 40 hour training.

One of the instructors, Captain Matlock, said every officer gets the training.

It focuses on how to patrol using a bicycle and how to use a bicycle at slow speeds to travel through big groups of people.

Matlock says bicycle patrols are useful for crowd control situations such as football games and as a way to engage with the community.

The post UKPD working to give every officer bicycle training appeared first on ABC 36 News.
