After protests, Spokane Police Department trains new officers for Bicycle Rapid Response Team

After a Spokane protest devolved into a riot in May, Spokane Police Department tactical team leader Lt. Dave Overhoff knew it was time to get his planned Bicycle Rapid Response Team ready to work.

Overhoff took over the tactical team that works such community events as Hoopfest, Pig Out in the Park and various parades about two years ago.

“One of my visions was to bring the TAC team up to 21st century policing. This was really conducive to our mission, vision and values of our department,” Overhoff said of the bike team. “It had a lot to do with the community outreach that we had envisioned.”

The bike unit is ideal for crowd control and community engagement, Overhoff said.

After the George Floyd protest on May 31 in Spokane ended with officers using tear gas and firing rubber bullets to disperse protesters, Overhoff’s team trained the entire next week
