Cuero PD uses bikes for patrol

Residents of Cuero will see more  of a physical presence on the streets of downtown and the Cuero Municipal Park as the Cuero Police Department take the beat on bicycles.
 
“More people are out and the weather is more conducive for us to be on bicycles,” Cuero police sergeant Kevin Kroos said.
The Cuero Police Department purchased four bikes in 2012.
 
Kroos said, “I am getting the program back in motion after a short break. The determining factor in the bike patrol was that it is more of a community service project and citizens are more likely to approach you while on a bike.”
