The Dennis Police Department Bike Unit is used during the Spring, Summer and Fall months to provide additional police presence in busy areas and places that traditional police patrols cannot access. Officers patrol the Cape Cod Rail Trail, hiking and walking paths, parks, beaches and many of our busy summer neighborhoods. The Bike Unit is able to be deployed at any time of the day or night to assist with special events, missing persons or large gatherings. This flexibility allows the Dennis Police Department to better serve the community. The primary goal of the unit is to interact with as many residents and visitors throughout the town, while still being able to respond and assist with calls for service.
