The Bike Unit is active from early April to the first snowfall of the year. UAPS members have to apply to be considered for the Bike Unit. Members are selected based on attributes including dedication to riding, skill level, physical ability, and accountability to the University community. All members selected to the Bike Unit go through practical training that focuses on bike maneuverability, technical riding, suspect apprehension/takedowns, and proper bike maintenance. Many of the Bike Unit members are trained to the standard of the Law Enforcement Bicycle Association (LEBA). Visit www.leba.org for more information.
