The Mount Kisco Police Department formed their bicycle unit in 1995. The Mounted Bicycle Unit continues to be a cost effective method of providing our community with a high profile police presence, aggressive local law and traffic enforcement and, in providing officers that are "approachable" to the merchants, residents and especially the children of our community. The Mounted Bicycle Unit serves as an excellent public relations unit for the Mount Kisco Police Department.
The Mounted Bicycle Unit is a stealth unit with quick response times to the majority of the downtown area. This asset allows for the immediate response to obscure areas that a regular patrol vehicle would normally have difficult getting to. All Mounted Bicycle patrol officers are LEBA certified. This certification process entails a one week course that focuses on
All of out training is conducted by Sgt. Scott Semenetz. Certified by LEBA as a National Instructor, Sgt Semenetz is charged with coordinating in-house training for new Mounted Bicycle patrol officers. Due to this certification, the Mount Kisco Police Department is the host to an annual bicycle school instructed by Sgt Semenetz open to other agencies looking to have their officers certified.
Training dates will be posted when they become available.
