Bicycle Helmets & Safety Clinics

Helmets are required for children under age 16 riding a bicycle on a City street or City property. Bicycle helmets are available free of charge from the Police Department on an “as available” basis. The helmets come in various sizes and must be fitted to each child. Please contact the Captain of the Community Policing Division at 336-347-2312 to set up an appointment.

Bicycle Helmet Clinics are held from time to time, often in conjunction with local civic or church groups. At these clinics, bicycles can be registered and helmets fitted. Contact the Captain of the Community Policing Division for more information or if you wish to schedule a bicycle clinic in your community.
