The Iola Police Department is dusting off some barely used equipment in order to better connect with the community.

The equipment — a pair of 26-inch, 24-speed Trek road bicycles — has been a part of the department’s arsenal of patrol vehicles for several years, “before my time here,” noted Chief of Police Jared Warner.

Spurred in part by the citywide effort to get more Iolans out and about on bikes, Warner found two officers — Mike Aronson and Brian Plumlee — willing to earn certification to partake in the occasional bike patrol.
