Why Enroll in Security Bike Patrol Training?

  • • Classes meet safety guidelines and requirements of safety groups
  • • Patrol bikes and equipment are provided
  • • One of the most recognized hands-on courses for security and private corporations nationwide
  • • Officers receive certification of accomplishment upon passing the course
  • Take Your Security Bike Patrol Operations to the Next Level

    At American Bike Patrol Services, our security bike patrol training focuses on learning basic bike patrol techniques including: mounting and dismounting, maneuvering, and curb hopping. While there is limited combative and weapons training, the majority of the course will be focused on gaining confidence on the bike. Security cycling plays an important role in any community. This can play a role in controlling traffic, managing events, enforcing codes, and patrolling areas such as malls, airports, warehouses, college and corporate campuses, gated communities, and more! We take training very seriously and want to help you take your security patrol operations to the next level. Many business owners or officials may not see bicycle training as necessary because many people learn how to ride bikes when they are children. However, a security bike patrol officer could find themselves in situations that a child on a bicycle would not. Your team needs training on how to stop efficiently, weave in and out of busy crowds, and learn how to maneuver up and down a flight of stairs and face other obstacles. At American Bike Patrol Services, we focus on ensuring your security bike patrol team is able to do their job safely and efficiently.

    Benefits of a Security Bike Patrol Team

    Having a security team on bicycles has been proven to be successful in hundreds of instances. The biggest positive about a team of security bike patrol officers is that bicyclists are more approachable and less intimidating than an officer in a patrol vehicle. When it comes to public-friendly areas, people are more likely to walk up to a bicycle patrol officer to talk about legal matters, ask for directions, or inquire about parking. These positive contacts help counter stereotypes of patrol officers as people who are “out to get you,” and it establishes a relationship of trust between the community and your security team. Another benefit is that a perpetrator is less likely to notice a security bike patrol officer than an officer in a vehicle. Individuals who are breaking the law are not normally looking for bicycle officers, so they generally fail to recognize them until the very last moment. The bicycle allows security personnel to patrol a larger area of responsibility more effectively than a motor vehicle, and more efficiently than a person on foot. Security bicycles are easier to maneuver and can be used in large outdoor spaces, parking lots and garages, and inside large buildings or warehouses, to name a few. Bicycles are also less expensive to buy and maintain than patrol cars. Gas isn’t required nor are designated parking spots a necessity, since bikes can be locked up most anywhere. It’s also better for the environment, as bikes leave a much smaller carbon footprint than vehicles do. Having a bicycle patrol unit for your security team comes with many benefits, but without the proper training, you’re simply left with a group of people who can ride bicycles in uniform. When you sign up for American Bike Patrol Services’ elite security bike patrol training, your team will learn the basics of being a safe and effective bicycle patrol officer.
