The bicycle patrol unit was formed in the summer of 1997 with the purpose in mind of addressing all "quality of life" issues throughout the City of St. George. The unit has become the spearhead of the department's Community Oriented Policing (C.O.P.) efforts and works tirelessly to make sure that your public places-parks, trails, schools, shopping centers etc. remain free from crime and disorder. No matter what the task at hand may be, the bicycle patrol officers hold true to a preventive "No Broken Windows" enforcement philosophy.
The Traffic Unit is comprised of motorcycle officers and traffic cars. The cars are designated to handle the crashes and to focus on uninsured and stolen vehicles along with those that have revoked registrations or are associated with wanted persons. The motorcycles are designated to work traffic problems in the most congested areas of town, making it easier to get to the violators that are causing the crashes.
