Police hoping for greater presence and engagement
Swan Hill Police in conjunction with the Swan Hill Rural City Council launched Victoria Police bicycle patrols on Wednesday.
Local police are hoping that the patrol will provide a greater police presence, but also allow for some community engagement.
The unit will be wearing special uniforms and have under undergone specialized training.
Patrolling across the Swan Hill Shire, Inspector Haydn Downes says that they'll be in a variety of locations.
