Bicycle Patrol is designed to reduce crime within the MARTA system, to increase contact between the police officers and MARTA customers, and to increase the customer’s perception of safety and security in the system.
The Bicycle Patrol may operate in any precinct where Bicycle Patrol officers are assigned. It will operate under the command and control of the Precinct Commander. Only personnel who have been specifically trained and authorized to use the bicycles and associated equipment may utilize the bicycle equipment in any way. Personnel not properly trained and assigned to the unit are specifically prohibited from using the bicycles or any associated equipment.
