Campus Bicycle Patrol
The police department's bicycle patrol program has proven to be an excellent method of policing the campus and bringing the officers into closer contact with the college community. Initiated in 1993, at least one patrol officer on each shift is assigned to bicycle patrol on the campus. The department presently owns two specially equipped police mountain bikes for this operation.
All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) Patrol
One of the first in the State of Texas to implement an ATV patrol program, the Central Texas College Police Department is proud of its rolling four wheeling police patrol unit. The inception of the CTCPD ATV began in the spring of 2006. As with the bicycle patrol, the ATV's mobility and speed permit officers to effectively patrol the rural areas on campus including the famous CTC Duck Pond and the CTC Farm and Ranch Management region. Many benefits are associated with both the ATV and the bicycle patrol. The mobility of a bicycle enables the officer to move silently in and out of designated areas more frequently. Both the bicycle and the ATV can move through congested areas more easily than a police sedan. The bicycle and ATV patrol officer is more approachable than the officer in a vehicle, which facilitates one-on-one contact with the public. Since weather conditions are a major disadvantage to both alternative methods of patrol, bicycle patrols and ATV patrols are suspended during extreme and inclement weather conditions.
