Police Mountain Bike Program

Hours: 32
Tuition: $295.00

Program Information:

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, basic maintenance, and more. Designed to enable officers to concentrate on their duties, not their riding, the Police Cyclist program 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 learn ways to maximize their effectiveness within the communities they serve.

Prerequisites: Applicants must be law enforcement officers currently assigned to bike patrol, officers applying to become members of a bike unit, or members of a department considering use of the bicycle.

 **Cancellations for this class must be received by SLEA 35 days prior to the start of the program in order to avoid being billed!**
