Bike Patrol

The Village of Manhattan is proud to announce that the Manhattan Police Department has launched a New Bike Patrol Unit.  The Manhattan Police Department was able to launch this program by using Assets Forfeiture Funds.  The Assets Forfeiture Funds represents the proceeds of, or were used to facilitate crimes.  With these funds the Manhattan Police Department was able to purchase 2 specialty equipped bikes and to have 2 officers specialty trained. Officer Podkul and Officer Redlich will be out in the community this spring.
