Eastern Michigan University's Department of Public Safety has expanded its bicycle patrol program. It's expected to benefit the local community.
"It's great for officers to be on bicycles because we're more accessible to the public. It's easier to stop and talk to people around campus or for people to wave us down and say hi or tell us if they've got questions," said Torres.
EMU Police will host a Bike Rodeo on August 11th to educate the public on bicycle safety and to have some fun by offering interactive activities and free food. It will be held at the EMU Convocation Center.
