Owens Community College security officers have been patrolling the campus on mountain bicycles since 1998.
The Department of Public Safety Bicycle Patrol operate on both campuses. The Bike Patrol is composed of security personnel who have received training from the International Police Mountain Bike Association (IPIMBA) in order to become members of the bike patrol.
The Bike patrol has proven to be highly beneficial to interaction between the officers and the community. The officers ride as weather allows from May until late October.
