The bicycle patrol unit’s mission is to promote bicycle safety and enhance police-community relations. The use of bicycles enables the officers to have more personal contact with the public, and allows the officers to reach areas inaccessible by other vehicles. In addition to supplementing traditional patrol functions, the unit participates in community events and deploys the bicycles within Burlington Township's neighborhoods. The unit also participates in community events such as Bike with a Cop, Safe Rider & Bike Rodeo, National Night Out, and various bicycle registration events. The bicycle patrol unit also participates in school functions such as the homecoming parade and can be seen at various football games throughout the season.

In addition, when the police department recovers a lost or stolen bicycle, registration assists them in returning the bicycle to the rightful owner.
