Police Bike Patrol Division
The Department Bike Patrol Division was made possible by donations from local businesses and organizations. Bike Patrol allows the Department an opportunity to have a couple of officers who can patrol neighborhoods in a more upfront and personable manner. Officers on bikes are most often more approachable than being in their normal patrol cars. The Bike Patrol is used seasonally but a major part in the Department's Community Policing efforts. The above officers (Patrolman Terry Braswell-[left] and Patrolman Tim Wolff-[right]) are currently assigned to the Charlestown Police Department Bike Patrol Division. Both officers were required to attend police bike patrol training to become properly train and become certified to use a bicycle to perform a law enforcement job. For more information on the Bike Patrol Unit, contact Sgt. Terry Braswell at email@example.com or 812-256-6345, x204.
