Public Safety Bike Patrol Unit
Our officers can quickly access all areas of campus on bicycle.
The Department of Public Safety Bike Patrol Unit operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, weather permitting. These officers perform the identical duties as other uniformed officers on campus however; they are able to navigate more easily throughout the campus.
Benefits to having the bike unit on campus includes:
- Promoting high visibility of the officers which enables the campus community to feel safer while moving about the campus.
- It allows the officer to be more approachable by the students, faculty, staff and visitors, enabling the officer to interact more easily with the community.
- Bike patrol officers are able to conduct routine patrol functions as they are able to perform numerous other functions that a patrol officer in a vehicle would not be able to complete.
The Adelphi University Bike Patrol Unit welcomes interactions with the Adelphi University Community so please do not hesitate to approach a bike officer and ask questions.
