Bike the Beat is a community policing initiative with the Oak Park Police Department’s residential beat officers biking through an area, or zone, and stopping to engage with residents. The RBOs bike each zone with officers riding as a group along the streets, stopping at fields, parks and playgrounds. The officers are available to meet with residents, answer questions about the community, listen to feedback and even register bikes on-site. Officers are assigned to serve as RBOs for eight geographic zones throughout the Village. More information about Bike the Beat, including dates for upcoming rides, is available at www.oak-park.us/bikethebeat.
