Selma Police have updated uniforms for officers on bicycle patrol. They replace uniforms designed 20 years ago.

Police Chief R.A. Cooper say the new uniform has a more “modern professional look.”

Currently, six officers assigned to bicycle patrols have been fitted for the new uniforms. The cost was just over $1,800 but will not cost taxpayers any money.

The uniforms will be paid for with donated funds from the yearly police department calendar and from a donation from the Moose Lodge.

Police use bike patrols during special events and patrol areas of town as needed for enforcement efforts.
