The Rialto Police Department's Bike Patrol Team is a highly effective and pro-active policing tool. The team participates in numerous anti-crime efforts and provided security for several community and downtown events. The team currently consists of five specially trained officers. Each officer had to attend an arduous week long training course where they learned how to traverse stairs, maneuver through obstacles, chase fleeing criminals and use the bike to gain a tactical advantage on criminals.
The Rialto Police Department’s Bike Team has received tremendous financial support from several businesses within the community. These businesses have generously contributed over $20,000 dollars to purchase bikes and other needed equipment. Due to their generous contributions, the Rialto Police Department’s Bike Team is equipped with the best bikes and equipment money can buy.
