ALLENTOWN, Pa. - A new bike is on the beat in Allentown.
Representatives of the Mountainville Crime Watch presented an outfitted police bicycle to the Allentown Police Department on Thursday.
Chief Joel Fitzgerald said it's great to see the community working with the police department to make Allentown a safer place to live.
"It's just a testament to the extent that the citizens here in Allentown will go to make sure we're able to do our jobs to the utmost," Fitzgerald said. "Allentown's a really family oriented place, and they've embraced us, and we've embraced them."
In past years, the Mountainville Crime Watch has donated a Taser to the police department and fire boots for the fire dog.
