The Burien Police Department on Tuesday (July 22) launched a part-time Bike Patrol with a focus on businesses and parks, and in less than two hours, found five alcohol violations. You’ll see them mostly in the downtown core, particularly around Town Square Park and the Library/City Hall on SW 152nd Street, looking for aggressive begging, public drinking and vehicle prowls, besides other illegal activities. The officers believe their presence should make a difference downtown. “It’s a quality of life issue,” says Officer Troy Smithmeyer, pictured below (left) with Officer Paul Mulligan (click image to see larger version): 10574348_10152756856578296_4804099890912082538_n Photo courtesy City of Burien.]]>
