Yesterday, Lafayette’s local news channel had a story on training for bicycle patrolmen. I think that bike based police are a great addition to local forces, but I don’t understand the training. In one excercise, the officer jumped off the back of his moving bike, and then chased it down before it rolled away. How does this help in law enforcement? Is it just a way to work on agility?
Anyway, the TV station has posted the video. I can’t seem to link to the video directly, so take a look today while it is still up.
