Gas prices may put Austin officers on bicycles

By Isadora Vail
Austin American-Statesman

AUSTIN, Tex. — Most police departments in Williamson County have bikes they haven't used in years and are considering dusting them off to help cope with gas prices. But some departments lack enough officers for full-time bike patrols.

Taylor has four mountain bikes, said Sgt. Dan Ramsey, who heads the dormant bike patrol unit, but the department has been unable to use the bikes for a few years because it doesn't have enough officers. He said four cadets are in training now, and the department hopes to have the bike unit operating within a year. The department is adding officers, so it will finally have enough for some to be on bike patrol, Ramsey said.
