Police: WCU Police Mountain Bike Patrol

West Chester University Police was the first law enforcement agency in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to use mountain bikes for routine patrol purposes. This specially trained team of officers first hit the streets of the campus in 1991. The Bike Patrol Team typically operates March 1 until October 31 depending on the climate.

The West Chester University Police Mountain Bike Team has traveled to other Universities and Municipal Police departments to assist them in starting their own bicycle teams. The team also maintains a campus bicycle registration program. The department trains in and subscribes to the International Police Mountain Bike Association (IPMBA) standards.
