Biker Cops

Yeah baby! Cops on bikes. No, not CHiPS-style (a cultural reference that will go over the heads of anyone under 30), they’re on bicycles. Woodstock SAPS officers are now patrolling on two wheels. This is a great initiative – it raises visibility of policing, they can cover more ground, but still helps officers develop a sense of who’s who, and who’s dodgy. WID (Woodstock Improvement District) and Nils Hansen of UWRA, and owner of Woodstock Cycle Works down near the Good Hope Centre, are assisting with maintenance of the bikes. Nice job.
