Noble Police Bike Patrol Peddling Forward

                Veteran Noble Police Officer Vincent Alger has recently completed a 40 hour training course certified through the International Police Mountain Bike Association.

                “This training will be an effective and key tool to enhance the Noble Police Department’s Community Policing efforts. Being proactive and a community partner will help to reduce the fear and incidents of crime,” Chief Springstead said. “Strategic utilization of resources is an important aspect in providing quality and effective law enforcement services to the citizens that we serve.”

                The 40 hour training course was hosted by the University of Oklahoma Police Department.  Various departments from around the state also participated in the training which is essential for an officer’s on-the-job performance and safety.  The course combines Emergency Vehicle Operations for Bike Officers with patrol procedures, tactics, night operations, basic maintenance, and other training elements.  The Police Course is designed and centered on skill development for braking, dynamic mounts and dismounts, curb/stair ascents and descents, obstacle avoidance, and slow speed and balance.  Thru lectures, skill stations, and scenarios, officers learn ways to maximize their effectiveness within the communities they serve.  Other topics officers studied included basic fitness, nutrition, clothing and personal protective equipment, patrol procedures and patrol tactics.

                “The Noble Police Department is very fortunate to have a Bicycle Officer that will assist during parades, fun runs, as well as his exposure that he will provide to the businesses, neighborhoods, and parks during his scheduled shift” Chief Springstead commented.
