Photos: Aurora police train to shoot from a bike
Cops on bicycles aren't always taken as seriously as their brethren in police cruisers, probably because they don't look as cool pedaling and wearing bike helmets. But they're every bit as tough as colleagues who travel with the help of four wheels instead of two -- and in Aurora, they definitely have the special skills needed to shoot over a pair of handlebars. The Aurora Police Facebook page, which regularly shares vivid pics (check out our post spotlighting badass Aurora cops of the 1980s) recently posted images of bike-patrol firearms training at the Debra Sue Corr Police Training Center to "certify officers in the use of the police mountain bikes for patrol operations." Mess with them at your peril. See a gallery of the shots below.
