The Amherst Police Department “Bike Patrol” consist of three new 2017 Fuji Code 3-XT Max special built police package bicycles, equipped with 30 speeds, red and blue light system, special tires and trunk bag.

The new bikes were made possilbe by generous donations from the Amherst Eagles F.O.E. #1442, Amherst V.F.W. Post #1662 and the American Legion Post #118.

Sgt. Jacob Perez is the officer-in-charge of the Bike Patrol unit.

Other officers assigned to the Bike Patrol are:

Ptl. Jason Nahm

The bike patrol made its debut on Memorial Day 1999.

The Bike Patrol is utilized during the warmer weather, where you may see them on regular patrol in the downtown areas as well as in the residential neighborhoods. While mostly riding in warmer weather the bikes can be used as late as October during the Skeleton Run.

Commonly, you will see the officers on Bike Patrol along the footpaths of the Beaver Creek Reservation, historic downtown as well as each and every parade put on by the city of Amherst.

If you haven’t been to visit the Reservation please stop out and take a “stroll”, I’m sure you would agree that it was a very pleasant experience. As the path is one of the finest in the county. The entrance to the park is just to the north of the police facility. Also located next to the police facility is the Lorain County Veterans Memorial. The Amherst Police Department thanks those service men and woman who sacrifice every day for our country.

The Amherst Police Bike Unit would like to thank all who have supported this unit.

 

Thank you,

Sgt. Jacob Perez

The bike units were provided to the Amherst Police Department through donations by the Amherst V.F.W.
