Bike Patrol

The Endicott Police Department instituted a bicycle patrol program in July 1995. Patrolling by bike allows easy access to places which are unreachable by car or impractical to patrol on foot. This method of patrol also increases public interaction, promotes high officer visibility, and represents a more approachable policing style. In Endicott, the bike patrol is primarily used in business districts, parks, and neighborhoods.

In 1995 several business donated over $1000 to assist the Police Department in getting the bike patrol started at very little cost to the Village.

The bicycle patrol officer averages nineteen miles per shift. As a comparison, patrol cars average about thirty miles per shift. The officer is assigned to the same type of calls for service as an officer in a car, with the exception of prisoner transports and certain traffic enforcement (speeding, for instance). Bike patrol officers do perform traffic stops when it can be done in a safe and practicable manner.

Bicycle patrol officers Dennis DeWitte, Mark Robinson and Paul Brunner attend an intensive five-day training course for certification by the International Police Mountain Bike Association. The course is designed to train officers in emergency maneuvers, tactics for safe apprehension of criminals, quick dismounts, and firearms use.


Bomb Squad

 In 1985 the Endicott Police Department Bomb Squad was formed.  The Bomb Squad was created due to the increase in bomb related incidents globally especially in major industries.  With the support of one of the largest corporations in the Endicott area, the Bomb Squad became fully equipped and operational.  Today, a major portion of the equipment received by the Unit is received from the Federal Government and Homeland Security.  

The Endicott Police Department Bomb Squad is a multi-jurisdictional unit consisting of Police Officers from our department, Fireman from the Endicott Fire Department and the Binghamton Fire Department, and a Fire Investigator from Broome County.  The officers that are part of the unit are Det/Lt Craig Williams, Sgt Deron Bowman, P.O. Michael Hilla, P.O. Mark Klumpp, Fire Marshall Tom Murphy, Fireman Dana Stockton, Fireman Rick Tinder, and Sr Fire Investigator Tom Vroman.  Fireman Don Collins is also assigned to the squad and has not yet attended the 5 week certification course for bomb squad members. The Bomb Squad continues to meet the needs of the Village a well as surrounding communities.   

The Bomb Squad responds to and handles incidents in the Village of Endicott as well as other jurisdictions in Broome, Tioga, Tompkins, Chemung and other counties in the Southern Tier.  The Bomb Squad is part of an organization called Upstate Bomb Squad Commanders which consists of several bomb squads in the Upstate area.  This organization trains and provides assistance and knowledge to one another.
