Castle Rock Police Bike Patrol Teams With Project Recycle
The Castle Rock police department is doing their part to give back to the community.
The Castle Rock Police Bike Patrol was officially established last year with 4 officers that currently patrol the Castle Rock trails and open areas on their bicycles. While the police have had bicycle officers in the past, it was officially made part of the police department last year. These police officers are regular patrol officers in the bike off season.
Recently the bike patrol went to tour the Project Recycle facility where they donated a couple of bikes to be given to children in need. After touring the facility and hearing how Project Recycle helps those in need, the police department decided to take more action and pitch in.
The police department organized a large bike drive where people can drop off their used (or new) bicycles in any condition. Project Recycle volunteers will then repair the bikes and find them new homes with children who have a need for a bike.
Many of us have fond memories of learning to ride our bikes and the fun that came with riding around the city with our friends. Today many children do not have the luxury of owning a bicycle and Project Recycle is doing their part to help as many children as they can.
You can drop off your bikes any time between 9 am and 11 am at Festival Park on August 17th.
