Grove CID Bike Patrols
The Grove Community Improvement District (CID) pays for bike patrols in the entertainment district along Manchester Ave.
The CID funds 40 hours of patrols per week, 2080 per year, at a yearly cost of $104,ooo. These patrols are made up of off-duty police officers, who are authorized to make arrests if necessary. Patrols occur in the evenings on Friday, Saturday, and either Wednesday or Thursday every week. Statistics show that crimes are lower during the times that the patrols occur.
The Marketing Committee is steering several initiatives, including
- Events, including Grove Fest, Tour de Grove, and additional events to be added in 2012
- Advertising available commercial spaces to potential new businesses
- Social media promotions
