From April through October, the bike unit provides for a more immediate response to calls for service in those areas inaccessible by squad car. The Village of Oak Brook has many wooded areas and parks and local bike trails. Our bike unit currently consists of 11 officers and one supervisor. Bike officers are certified by the International Police Mountain Bike Association and ride Specialized Trek Mountain Bikes. These officers are expected to supplement our patrol officers in responding to calls and taking appropriate enforcement action. Bike officers are assigned to special events, educational programs to assist in Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) and incidents in which crowd control may be needed.
