Police Working to Bring Back Bike Patrol

Yakima police are aiming at bringing back the summer downtown bike patrol -- starting this weekend.

Police say they will have police officers patrolling downtown for First Friday, and are looking to establish a permanent group to patrol the downtown area every weekend.

For now, officers will be out on key weeknights to ensure the public feels safe, and possibly prevent crimes.

Police hope to have full bike patrols by June.
