The Motor Squad consists of highly trained motorcycle officers who
provide traffic enforcement and motor vehicle crash investigation services. The Hit and
Run Investigations Unit specializes in those traffic cases where the drivers flee the
scene to avoid detection.
The Bicycle Patrol officers are specially trained to provide a quick and quiet response to requests for police services. They are primarily assigned to patrol the Riverwalk (also patrolled by the Riverwalk Patrol Unit) and City Parks, but may also be used tactically in residential and business areas as needed. This unit is also conducts many bicycle related safety campaigns in Columbus and the surrounding area.
The School Crossing Guard Unit is a group of trained civilians that provide safe pedestrian access to school properties. A Police Technician manages them in a cooperative administrative arrangement between the City of Columbus and the Muscogee County School District.
