The Police Department has introduced a five-member Bike Patrol, aimed at bringing a more tangible police presence to town events. It is a new initiative of Chief Jeffrey Silva, who started work last summer. The five officers on bikes are Michael Dilalla, Don Murphy, Sean Pillai, Mark Randlett, and Bill Sheehan. Officers will patrol Halloween festivities, other town events, and the University Station development that will soon be under construction. Officers were required to complete training through Cops on Bikes With Education for Bicyclists, a program offered through the Police Academy.
