BMW of Sterling donated three BMW bicycles to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office last month, helping outfit a department that equips more than 50 deputies with bicycles.
“We believe in supporting our local law enforcement and look forward to continuing our support in the future,” said Thomas A. Moorehead, chairman and CEO of Moorehead Properties Inc.
The new bicycles will be assigned to patrol deputies.
“This unit focuses on building a better relationship with the public by getting out in the neighborhoods and focusing on the community's needs,” Sheriff Mike Chapman said. “We live in a county that is 520 square miles with numerous bike trails, including the W&OD trail that traverses over 20 miles of the county. These bicycles will assist us in reaching parts of the county that are not easily accessible by patrol car or on foot.”
School resource officers and community resource officers also ride bicycles.
