The Downtown Bike Patrol squad provides an effective and efficient method of patrolling the downtown business district. The officers assigned to this unit work in conjunction with the residents and business owners to reduce crime in the downtown area. The Downtown Bike Patrol squad works a similar schedule to the patrol squads providing coverage to the downtown area everyday. The officers assigned to this unit answer calls for service, enforce city ordinances and traffic complaints specific to the downtown area, and also provide police services during special events.
Officers with the Downtown Bike Patrol attend the Downtown Winston Salem Partnership Public Safety and the Downtown Winston Salem Restaurant Roundtable meetings once a month, providing crime statistics and information to the business owners of the downtown area. This attendance allows officers the opportunity to meet and interact with residents and business owners to better understand concerns they may have in the downtown area and to address those concerns.
