Allentown Police Department Recieves 3 New Bikes
Updated On: Mar 26, 2015


Three state of the art bicycles worth $4,500 donated to bicycle patrol unit

ALLENTOWN, PA — Lehigh Valley Electricians Local 375, members of the Lehigh Valley Building and Construction Trades Council, presented three brand-new, state –of-the-art bicycles to the Allentown Police Department’s Bicycle Patrol Unit today during a news conference in City Council Chambers inside Allentown City Hall. The bikes are valued at $1,500 each and feature 29 speeds.

"We’ve heard so many good things about the bicycle cops downtown before and after events at the PPL Arena" said Dave Reichard, President of Lehigh Valley Electricians Local 375, which is based in Allentown. "People feel safe with them there. We are so grateful that we can do this for the Police Department and the City of Allentown. Our members benefitted from the jobs that were created by all of the construction downtown, so it is our way of giving something back to the City."

The money for the bikes came through the membership dues for those who work in the union. This is one of the many community service projects that members of the Lehigh Valley Building Trades perform throughout the year across the entire Lehigh Valley region.

Paul Anthony Jr., Business Manager for Local 375, stated that this supports the partnership between the business community and the Police Department. "The Bike Patrol officers were always around during construction of the arena, and they have changed the perception that downtown Allentown in now safe again for visitors. We’re happy to give back and support these officers. They do a tremendous job, and we appreciate what they do, especially on cold days like today."
