Hayward police bike patrol adds officer


Police are beefing up their downtown patrol, adding another bicycle officer and more patrol shifts.

The department revived its bike patrolling earlier this year when Officer Craig Fovel was assigned the downtown beat. Fovel, a bicycle-certified officer, has become a familiar sight, patrolling parking lots, riding down pedestrian walkways, and rolling his bike into shops to check in with merchants.

A second officer, Aaron Runolfson, began patrolling with Fovel last week, said police Lt. Dave Lundgren.

"We are thrilled," said Renee Rettig, manager of The Book Shop on B Street. "It was great to have one officer; it's even better when it's two. It's been quieter downtown, and we expect a great summer."

Moving the north-district police office downtown also has helped, she said. Police are now in the building at Main and C streets that once housed the Hayward Area Historical Society.
