The Cuero Police Departments has 4 (Four) bicycles as additional tools that are used on patrol. The Cuero Police Department purchased the bicycles in 2012 and the program has been around since that time. Officers will be patrolling the park area, downtown area and neighborhoods.
Officers will also be using the bikes during different community/city
events involving citizens of Cuero. They can be faster, in such a
situation that a vehicle is unable to get through a crowd, they are also
easier to maneuver in large crowds than a vehicle. Bicycles are
stealthier, allowing Officers to get closer to where people are and not
be noticed, such as where drugs are being dealt or a party going on. The
determining factor in the bike patrol was that it is more of a
community service project and citizens are more likely to approach
Officers while on a bike. It is about providing the service to the
community and having the support of the community.
The community is who
we serve and protect and with their help we are able to gather valuable
information. The Cuero Police Department is dedicated to the citizen of
Cuero and pride ourselves on Integrity, Honor and Courage.
The Cuero Police Department and Wal-Mart have continued their strong community partnership by joining forces in combating bicycle theft. Wal-Mart shows their support of Cuero Police Department's "Operation: Bike ID" by generously awarding the Cuero Police Department $1,400 through their Community Grants Program. This award will be utilized in the purchase of a record management program that will be the repository of all the bikes registered with the Cuero Police Department. "Operation: Bike ID" is a bike registration program offered to the citizens of Cuero. The program is free and beneficial to the safe keeping of your bicycles.
To Register your bike, bring it to the Cuero Police Department at 100 N Clinton.
