Rain or shine, you’ll find Officer Mike Kirchen pedaling away. Actually, there’s a good chance that you might run into him while he’s “shooting the breeze.” That’s exactly what the MPD has asked him to do. He personifies Chief Harteau’s “Cops out of Cars” directive as a member of our Community Engagement Team. His passion and dedication to helping people lead to the creation of Bike Cops for Kids. “Officer Mike” works with private sector partners to provide bikes for kids who need them. All told, he’s distributed hundreds of bikes and thousands of bike helmets to children who are dealing with tough circumstances.
