BICYCLE PATROL
In June 1996, the City of Portage opened its Prairie Duneland Trail. The trail is a beautiful 5.78 mile blacktop bike trail that extends from County Line Road to State Road 149.

Because of the community’s response to the Prairie Duneland Trail, the Portage Police Department, in cooperation with the Portage Park Department, created a bicycle patrol which twenty-five regular and reserve officers participate.

Private donations initially provided the funding for the project. The Portage Police Department received a block grant from the United States Justice Department which will fund the Bicycle Patrol throughout 1998.
