Yakima Police Start Summer Bike Patrols

Posted: Updated:
YAKIMA, WA. -- It's officially summer and the Yakima Police Department has started their bike patrols. Two policemen will be on bike patrol everyday for the rest of summer. 

The patrols will cover the entire downtown area and parts of the Greenway. Officers say the hope is that these patrols can help people feel safe while downtown.

"The bike patrols is a program of high visibility," Officer Gary Garza said. "We have a lot of citizens that frequent the downtown areas so we want to present a high profile of safety."

The officers told us that if you have any questions or problems, feel free to stop them and ask at any time.
