New Officers Join Longview Bicycle Unit

      Seven new bike patrol officers have qualified to join the Longview Police Department's Bicycle Patrol Unit.

      The officers had to qualify in field training, like- navigating through crowds at events such as Alleyfest. They also had to test their abilities in holiday security at the mall.

     The bicycle unit is utilized in an as needed basis, and the officers return to regular patrol during the week. There are now 13 bike officers in the unit.
