Fairfax County Police Patrols On Bikes In Every District

The boots on the ground for the Fairfax County Police Department include the numerous bicycle squads cruising throughout the county, keeping communities safe while interacting with the public on a daily basis. These bicycle squads, called Neighborhood Patrol Units “remove the barrier between the officers and the public,” said Sgt. Scott Shafer, a police spokesperson who started his career as part of the bike team based out of the Franconia District Station.
If an officer is on a bicycle, it makes it easier to approach some of the residents, particularly children
According to the Springfield Connection, "There are about 60-70 bicycle officers in the various districts around the county, divided into units of up to eight riders and one captain. It would seem the weather would have some impact, but it’s a year-round duty that most of the first-year officers participate in while they climb the ladder through the ranks. “They certainly are equipped to be out in all weather,” Shafer said." As per Springfield Connection, "There are some rules for the bike officers to follow, both qualifying to be a rider and rules of the road, laid out in Fairfax County Police Department general order #530.4, dated July 1, 2012. “It shall be the policy of the Fairfax County Police Department to implement the use of bicycles by officers whenever such methods will result in an improved level of service to the community,” the order states. Bicycle officers must go through a training course and complete a “ride-along,” with another officer before official duty starts. At least two bike officers must work together on a patrol, and they need to wear a helmet and ballistic vest."
