Salem State's bike patrol is an important part of our department, and allows officers to quickly respond to all areas of campus in and around the city of Salem. Weather permitting, the bike units offer support for patrol, traffic enforcement, investigations, and crime prevention activity for the Salem State community. All bike patrol officers must pass a grueling and difficult program through C.O.B.W.E.B. (Cops on Bikes with Education for Bicyclists), a police program that leads to certification as a member of a bike patrol squad.
Members of the bike patrol unit:
- Sergeants:Dean Bruno, Richard Sherry, Christine DeFelice, and Joseph Dunn Jr.
- Corporals: James Gargano and Daniel Musto
- Officers: Eric Cochrane and Laura Wheatley
