Bedworth Police and a business group on the largest industrial estate in the region are leading the way in a new scheme to crack down on crime.
Police cycle patrols have been launched as part of a pioneering bid to target street crime, anti social behaviour and respond to calls from the public.
The initiative is being used as backing for regular beat officers - offering what the police describe as a more personal service - and has the support of the Bayton Road Group, made up of tenant firms on Bayton Road Industrial Estate and the Bayton Road Industrial Estate Focus (BRIEF), a partnership involving Warwickshire County Council to bring about a range of improvements to the estate.
Insp Gill Young, based at Bedworth said: "It is not that we have more of a problem than any other policing area in the county. By using cycle patrols the officers have far greater flexibility to cover large expanses, particularly the various alleys and walkways that criss-cross beat areas."
One of the four bikes has been provided by the business group and estate coordinator Jane Gillon based at The Hub resource centre added: "The bikes will have a big impact on police visibility, especially as they will be able to cover a much bigger area in a shift."
Police forces across England are putting hundreds of officers through the International Police Mountain Bike Association's training courses.
Pc Ian McLeod is one of the first constables trained to deliver pedal cycle training courses. The lessons are about more than just teaching bobbies how to ride their bikes, he says.
"Constables learn handling skills and how to get on and off bikes quickly and safely to make an arrest."
Insp Young added: "Within the Crime Fighting Team are four police community support officers who have their own areas of responsibility but as part of the bigger team can be deployed as a visual deterrent."
