WCU Mounted Police Bike Patrol
West Chester University was the first law enforcement agency in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to use mountain bikes for patrol purposes. This team of officers hit the streets of the campus in 1991. The Bike Patrol Team operates twenty-four hours a day from April 1 until October 31. Team members patrol the 400 acre campus on Trek mountain bikes. Bike officers have the same patrol responsibilities as those patrolling in vehicles. Additionally, bike officers participate in Community Policing programs.
The West Chester University Mountain Bike Team travels to other Universities and Municipal Police departments to assist them in starting their own bicycle teams. The team also maintains a campus bicycle registration program.
