Bike Patrol Starting for YPD

Bike Patrol Starting for YPD

          The Yankton City Commission met on Monday night to discuss the initial purchase of bicycles for a new YPD bike patrol.

          Police Chief Jason Foote talks about his vision of a bike patrol…

          The proposal is to purchase 2 Police Special electric bicycles from Kopetsky’s Bike and Fitness for $10,745.85.

          The bicycles need to be ordered, properly outfitted, then the officers trained in their use before they start patrolling on them.

          Foote talks about how bikes will be used by our officers…

          The Commission authorized the purchase of these bicycles, and Chief Foote expects that we will start seeing officers on bikes this summer.
