Hattiesburg police add bike patrols to curb robberies

Hattiesburg Police Department officials said Friday crime is down since 2007, but a rash of burglaries has the department on alert.

Public information officers and community relations officers will be joining patrol duty on bicyles in an attempt to reduce the problem. 

Authorities said the burglaries are not confined to a specific area, so officers will be spread throughout the city.
