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.
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
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.
