West Seattle scene: Police on two wheels

Spotted these officers pulled over briefly during a Harbor Ave ride, near Salty’s, this afternoon. When we talked with Southwest Precinct Capt. Joe Kessler a week ago about Alki police-presence plans, he mentioned the possibility of bike patrols again this year, so we’ll be checking on whether this might have portended that. ADDED 7:32 PM: A tipster tells us SPD has a mountain-bike training class this week, with officers from other departments as well as new SPD bicycle officers and parking-enforcement officers involved.

    Saw a lone bike cop in the Central District the other day…wondered why he’d wandered so far from downtown. All makes sense now.

    This is great news… Seeing is believing.

Sorry, comment time is over.
