Bike Patrol, 2011

Officer Petersen talks safety

The Lincoln Police Bike Patrol began in 1988 when Officer Mark Domangue looked for a more efficient way for foot patrol officers to answer calls in the downtown area. A year later, the inclusion of bikes in regular patrol during second shift made way for the conversion from a foot patrol squad to a formalized bike patrol in 1990. Bikes were donated by area businesses and the first police bike patrol in the State of Nebraska was formed. In 2004, a year by year history of the bike patrol was created to commemorate fifteen years.
