Arkansas City police officers this summer will make an effort to conduct foot patrols downtown to increase communications with business partners and the community.
Their first foot patrol Wednesday yielded some concerns from the business community about bicycles and skateboards on the downtown sidewalks, according to an ACPD Facebook post.
Police observed one bicyclist and one skateboarder on the sidewalks and discussed the city ordinance with them.
"Be aware that bicycles and skateboards on downtown sidewalks create an unsafe environment for pedestrians," the post reads. "The situation will continue to be monitored in the coming weeks during foot patrols."
For any questions or concerns, contact the ACPD.
