Bike Unit 3
The Wheeling Police Bike Patrol Unit was formed May 1, 1996 and consists of specially trained officers. The officers are assigned to patrol areas of recent crimes, or in areas that the normal patrol car can not reach.
The unit can perform any normal patrol function except transporting their arrestees. For that the unit counts on assistance from their fellow patrol officers in cars. The unit's arrest totals have been climbing each month as they refine their techniques. The unit also conducted bicycle safety talks to over 2000 grade school children just before the start of summer. The unit patrols on black Cannondale bikes with police markings. The officers normally dress in dark shorts and polo shirts with police markings.
The unit is available for visits at block parties and for neighborhood watch meetings.

All property is maintained in the designated, secure Evidence/Property Control Room or secured property garage.
This Officer is a plain clothes officer specially trained in handling juvenile matters.
