Mountain Bike Patrol

The Laconia Police Department initiated mountain bike patrol in 1996 in an effort to provide a more visible and approachable presence in the business, neighborhood and tourist area of the city. Mountain Bike Officers routinely patrol the downtown business district and surrounding neighborhoods during the spring, summer, and fall months. In the summer tourist season, mountain bike officers are assigned to the Weirs Beach area and offer a more mobile and visible presence than traditional foot beat officers.

All of the mountain bike officers in the department are trained and certified through the Law Enforcement Bicycle Association (LEBA). The Department has a certified instructor on staff who provides regular in-service training and also conducts annual, basic police mountain bike training for this agency and other departments.
