    If this does not convince everybody to not leave your bike unlocked I don’t know what will. That is balls to steal 2 police bikes. If their bikes are not safe no ones is.

    The officer who had two patrol bikes stolen is dealt a one day suspension, without pay, according to the South Bend Tribune. One bike was hers, and one was her partner’s, who had temporarily left his under her watchful eye. The officer was in violation of the police department’s “duty manual” because she lost the bikes through negligence. She had left them unlocked while she stepped into a nearby bank to fill up a water bottle.
