The Erie Police Bicycle Patrol will be making its rounds for a few more weeks. This summer, the Erie Police Department reinstated the bike patrol to canvas a large portion of the downtown area. The officers put more than 200 miles on their bikes this summer and neighborhood businesses welcomed their presence.
Business Owner and General Manager of Alkeme tells us, “I think it’s very necessary. I do believe it’s important to have a police presence that is on foot or on bike. I have noticed them; spoke to most of them. It’s a very nice addition to the downtown area”.
The officers will be riding around downtown Erie until the end of October.
