Additional Info:

Deadline May 5th. Register Early, class is limited to 20 students. Description: Proper training is essential to an officer's on-the-job performance and safety. It is also critical in reducing liability. This course combines Emergency Vehicle Operations for bike officers with patrol procedures, tactics, night operations, scenarios, and basic bike maintenance with on-the-road repairs. The course is designed to enable officers to concentrate on their duties, not their riding. The Police Cyclist Course is centered on skill development for braking, dynamic mounts and dismounts, curb/stair ascents and descents, obstacle avoidance, and slow speed and balance. Other topics include basic fitness and nutrition, clothing and personal protective equipment, patrol procedures and tactics, and equipment selection. Through lectures, skill stations, and scenarios, officers will learn ways to maximize their effectiveness within the communities they serve.
