Bike Team

The Hanover County Sheriff's Office Bike Team consists of 1 officer-in-charge and 9 deputies. All members are required to successfully complete a 40 hour comprehensive basic law enforcement bicycle patrol training and certification program. Bicycle operations provide a versatile means of patrolling certain communities in Hanover County and assist in furthering the community policing and crime prevention efforts of this office. Bicycle operations provide for a better exchange of information between the Sheriff's Office and our citizens because the officers are more accessible and approachable on bicycles than in a motor vehicle.
