The bike patrol is very popular with the merchants and shoppers in downtown Silver City and for a while, though sporadic their presence was a welcome sight, then they were gone. The demise of the patrol is both sad and, well, not; one was promoted to shift commander and the other is on extended leave due to first an illness then a severe non-work related injury and may or may not ever return to work.

Not just any cop can get on a bicycle and patrol, they have to be certified and that class is 10 days long, is in Mesa Arizona and is only scheduled when enough have indicated interest. Though the class is free the cost for sending 2 cops is about $4,160 and the money is budgeted according to SCPD Chief Ed Reynolds. This cost includes Per Diem, regular pay and overtime pay. This cost does not include the extra hours needed to cover the loss of 2 cops with already short staff but Chief Reynolds thinks it is a very worthy program and is looking forward to getting it up and running again.

Back in the 1980"s and 90's Chief Reynolds was a bike cop then a motorcycle cop, yes, back in the day we had a motorcycle cap.
