Officer Buchanan patrols the Panhandle Trail on an electric bikeBicycle Patrols

South Fayette officers who are certified as police cyclists patrol the township's 2-mile portion of Panhandle Trail, plus other neighborhood walking and biking trails, parks and neighborhoods. They provide a visible police presence in areas that are not readily accessible by vehicle and provide the officers with a quicker, more flexible response to rural and recreational areas.

In 2017, the department added two electric bicycles, or e-bikes, that boost pedaling power to help officers pedal longer and traverse hilly terrain.
