After a long medical and recovery leave Bicycle Patrolman Efren Canas returned to downtown Silver City this week. Although he has been back at work for a few months, he is excited to be back with this ever popular program. It's unclear wether his old riding partner will join him occasionally as Jason Woods was promoted and now on a different schedule. Because the SCPD was (is) so understaffed and underfunded, as are all departments in this climate of austerity, Efren was confined to the patrol car until a plan could be devised to get him back on his bicycle. The plan worked out is that rather than direct pay he will be receiving "Comp Time" for his extra hours rather than direct pay; he'll be doing this for about 6 hours a week.

As I've written before, the training is free but is in Phoenix which costs the PD in work hours and food/lodging but Canas has floated a proposal for him to take the next class to become a trainer to certify more cops in bike patrol here. Cops have to be certified before they be on a bicycle patrol.
