We can set up classes at your site with a minimum amount of students. Departments can combine students from other agencies at their discretion.
ABPS will provide students with a patrol bike to use, if desired, as well as gloves, water bottles, and a cinch bag to keep. New, reduced-cost helmets are available to purchase on the day of the class. (Please note that by using our equipment, officers are not responsible for any damage that occurs in class. Use of personal equipment is the sole responsibility of the officer. All equipment will meet A.N.S.I. requirements as mandated by U.S. safety standards.)
All materials required for the course will be provided. This includes references and testing materials, certificates, officers’ evaluations, and final scores. Officers receive a certification of completion upon satisfactorily passing both the written and practical applications. Certifications will expire one year from the printed date.
Although this course follows the outline of the California State Law Enforcement basic bike patrol course, it has been modified to eliminate an endurance ride and shooting day. It is strictly an instructional and safety course taught by California Peace Officers Standards & Training (POST) certified instructors. If your department requires or allows the use of special equipment, please call us with your requests, and we will modify the course curriculum as needed. When you choose to enroll your team with American Bike Patrol Services, we will work closely with you to develop a quality training program that will best meet the needs of your personnel.
