The Chicago Police Department is utilizing bike patrols to help fight crime in high-violent areas.

The bikes help compliment foot patrols under “Operation Impact.”

“This will make officers even more mobile, and more responsive, while still making it easy for residents to interact and communicate with them,” said Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy.

The bike patrols began on April 1st. More than 100 foot patrol officers are trained and equipped with bikes.

The crime data shows bikes are already helping reduce crime.

Another bonus: the bikes are good in traffic.

    The police department and Stupidintendent McGoofy should issue toys to the police officers so they can play with the criminals. Remember, a happy gangbanger who has someone to play with temporarily is not committing crime.
