The Buckhannon City Police have several patrol divisions designed to protect and serve the community.
Bicycle Patrol Division - Combining mobility and efficiency led to the development of the Bicycle Patrol division. A logical component of community-oriented policing, bicycles offer immense benefit in terms of economy, efficiency, effectiveness, and positive public contact. Officers are able to complete traditional “beat officer” tasks and interact with the public. The community gains many of the advantages of a “beat officer” without the loss of mobility that dedicating an officer to foot patrol causes, and the officers are able to interact with and learn from the community.
