Bicycle Safety Information

Bike Patrol

Amherst College police officers have been patrolling the campus, lots, bike paths and surrounding wooded areas on mountain bicycles since 1994. In 2008 the police added a Vectrix Electric Motorcycle to the patrol fleet.

The officers are easily identified as police officers with blue shorts or training pants and french blue long and short sleeve polo shirts. The polo shirts have an embroidered badge and the word "Police" on the back and the department patch on the sleeve.

Bicycle Registration

  1. Participate in the bicycle registration program! The program, an offshoot of Operation Identification, has greatly deterred bicycle theft on the Amherst College campus. To participate in the program bring your bicycle to the Campus Police office.
