UTPD Bike Officers

bike officers patrolling


UTPD has full-time officers that patrol on bike. The first bike unit was introduced to UTPD in October 2014. 

The primary goals of having bike officers is to: 

  • Encourage more positive community relations by making police officers highly visible and approachable
  • Reduce response times to calls for service through rapid local response
  • Proactively assist with community issues and concerns within our campus community
  • Provide increased presence in near campus areas to address our community members’ safety and security concerns

We're proud to say that our bike officers are certified through the International Police Mountain Bike Association.
