Bike Safety

Officer with Two Young Kids Riding BikesThe South Milwaukee Police Department performs a unique service to the community by teaching bicycle safety to all 3rd graders in our schools. Officers spend a half day with each class, teaching the students proper helmet fit, the power pedal and other safe riding techniques. Through a generous donation from WE Energies, the Police Department maintains a trailer and bicycles that are used by all students. The 3rd graders enjoy bike safety very much and leave the class with improved riding skills that will keep them safe as they start their summer vacation.
