Above: 2014 Officer DeVault and Officer Brown taught C.E.C. students bicycle safety.
Our bicycle unit allows the officers to patrol the streets in a unique way. It allows a more “personal” contact with our department by having officers out of their patrol vehicle’s. We currently have four patrol bicycles with police markings and equipment. Our three bicycles officers are Jeremy DeVault, Carl Brown, and Patrick Murphy. All officers attended and passed a state certified class. The bicycle unit are used throughout the year but are concentrated mostly during special events such Fourth of July, parades, Second St Market, and more. Our first two bicycles were donated to us by the Peoria County Sheriff’s Department.
