The San Francisco Police Department’s bike patrol patrol program has been expanded into Glen Park, Capt. David Lazar announced Thursday.
“I have added bicycle officers to Glen Park, seven days a week,” the neighborhood’s top cop said in his daily e-mail briefing.
Three officers are assigned to the beat, which is centered around 30th and Mission streets but will branch into Glen Park.
”I know they will be a great addition to the neighborhood,” Lazar said.
Bike-riding police officers are able to cover more territory than foot patrols and typically can provide more interpersonal interaction with the public than occurs when officers patrol by car.
