Year-round, part-time officer to replace two seasonal 'bike cops' in Willmar, Minn.


WILLMAR -- As part of the effort to create the most effective and efficient department possible, the Willmar Police Department will be replacing two part-time summer bike patrol employees with one year-round, part-time community service officer.

The two bike patrol positions are being replaced because less bicycle traffic and other factors have greatly diminished enforcement of bicycle laws, says Police Chief David Wyffels.
