FACES AND PLACES: Pedal patrol
Published 05/22/2010, Grand Forks Herald
When it comes to patrolling the streets, Grand Forks police officer LaVonne Nelson prefers pedal power as her mode of transportation.
Nelson has been a member of the Grand Forks Police Department’s bike patrol since 2002 and its coordinator for the past five years. Being on the patrol allows her to get places she couldn’t’ reach from a car, she said. She rides her bike through alleys, in between apartment buildings and on the Greenway.
