The Bicycle Unit
The Coral Springs Bicycle Unit is a full-time police bicycle unit. The Unit consists of five officers and one sergeant. The Unit's primary focus is to address quality of life issues throughout the City and as an effective tool for community policing. Their responsibilities include, but are not limited to, bicycle patrol in City parks, business areas, and residential areas. The primary focus of the Unit is to increase security in City Parks and address quality of life issues through proactive enforcement. The Unit also focuses on bicycle safety programs and bicycle registrations. The officers usually ride 15 to 20 miles per day and use their issued police mountain bicycle as their primary form of transportation. The Bicycle Unit bridges the gap between vehicle patrol and foot patrol. Riding bicycles not only allows the Unit to reach out to the community, but also allows the officers to reach places officers in vehicles could not.
The Bicycle Unit is headed by Sergeant Dave Weisman. He can be reached at (954) 346-1763 or via e-mail DWeisman@coralsprings.org.
