Officers on wheels are bringing Coaldale's police force closer to their community. The borough has been using its bike patrol more often, with positive results.
The police department has had the bike for about two years.
"The officer will put it on the back of the cruiser and secure it and take it to the other end of the borough. He'll park the cruiser, take the bike off and patrol the avenues," said Police Chief Tim Delaney.
The bike is used mostly on night shifts, he said.
The silence and stealth are a big plus.
