Baltimore Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III is to be applauded for his efforts to make officers more accessible to citizens by taking them out of their cars (" City putting police back on foot patrol," Jan. 7). However, foot patrol is not the only alternative. Police officers on bikes can patrol more territory and respond more quickly than officers on foot. They can also move easily through congested areas and access alleys, parks, trails and other areas off-limits to cars.

Who can forget Preakness 2006, when Barbaro, a favorite to win the Triple Crown, collapsed in the first furlong with a fractured leg, prompting a police-escorted caravan up Interstate 95 to a veterinary hospital in Pennsylvania? Or Preakness 2002, when Baltimore police officers removed their badges and nameplates and were caught on video hitting a spectator with a baton during a melee in the raucous infield, embarrassing the department when it was aired nationally on ESPN? Or Preakness 1999, when drunken Lee Chang Ferrell scaled an infield fence, stood in front of eight charging horses during the seventh race — thankfully, not the live-on-national-television stakes race — and swung at the favorite, Artax?
