Rockford Scanner™: Rockford PD Using Resources For Stealth, And Gaining Public Support


Rockford PD Using Stealth, And Gaining Public Support

The Rockford PD is utilizing several resources they have to combat crime in the Rockford area. 

One of those tools are bicycles. We won’t say how many, or where.
(For safety reasons)
But we will say, there are several and there will probably a bicycle cop coming near you…

It is actually pretty good tactical thinking, for combating crime and positive PR with the community. 

Using a bicycle, you can gain the upper hand with stealth when trying to observe crimes and capture criminals,  And at the same time have a more personal interaction with the community. 

A Win/Win situation for the Rockford PD and the community.  

If you see an officer on a bicycle,
be sure to thank them for their service.
