Bikes added to Wilkes-Barre Police patrols

The city of Wilkes-Barre announced an addition Thursday to their community policing initiative.

Mayor George Brown and Wilkes-Barre Police chief Joseph Coffay said six new bicycles will complement their crime reduction patrols.

WBPD started bike patrols in targeted areas in recent years, according to the city.

The bikes were funded in part by The Luzerne Foundation and The Diamond City Partnership.
