Bicycle Law Enforcement Manual.
Hunter, William W.; Stutts, Jane C.
This manual is an attempt to draw together relevant resources and information for localities interested in developing a bicycle law enforcement operation. It is divided into five major sections. Section I explains the need for and importance of bicycle law enforcement. In section II are presented examples of past and current bicycle law enforcement programs. Section III focuses on the key elements of a bicycle law enforcement program that must be addressed in the initial program design. These include legal issues, who should do the enforcing, what to enforce, adjudication, program evaluation, and community support. Section IV deals with the role of the bicycle officer and the many responsibilities of this position. A resources section (section V) provides a list of relevant materials, including several pages of bicycle enforcement references, brief descriptions of two North Carolina organizations that could offer a community the most aid, lists and descriptions of pertinent films, and a set of educational references which provides a sample of available materials. Throughout the manual, extensive attachments are included to give the user examples from which to draw. (YLB)
