campus bike patrols

Bicycle Patrol Officers (BPO) maintain direct contact with community members while being able to cover large areas of the campus relatively quickly. Recent BPO initiatives included several "Bike Rodeos" present in concert with the New London Police Department, providing bike safety instruction and practical application to young children of the surrounding community. Also presented this summer was a BPO safety program, offered to Safety/Security Officers of consortium schools by our state certified instructor.
