Contributing to the Police Bicycle Resource Program is a good way to help our police officers enforce the law and deter crime in Pacific Beach.
According to police, a few weeks ago at about 12:30 a.m. on a Friday, officers spotted a white Toyota near Dawes and Missouri streets that was reported to have been used in at least three similar robberies there. Two men armed with knives, including a women driver, were apprehended. Police officers were able to approach the suspects unnoticed on their bikes.
Police say that bikes are effective tools to provide stealth as well as place them on the street interfacing with the public. However, our Northern Division police cannot use all of their bikes because they are short on necessary equipment.
Police Bicycle Resource Fundraising Program
Right now the PB Town Council is conducting a special fundraiser program to support our Northern Division Police Department. The goal is to completely equip nine police bicycles with lighting, sirens and safety equipment. Councilmember Fauconer’s challenge donation will match donations so your dollars will go a long way!
