Airport Division - Patrol Officers

Segway and Kid
The San Jose Police Airport Division provides patrol services for Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC) utilizing officers on foot, bicycle, and Segway as well as in police patrol cars. Additionally, some officers work with “bomb dogs,” specially trained explosives detection canines.
Patrol Officer and plane
The newest police vehicles at SJC are Segway Personal Transporters, individual mobile platforms which travel at speeds up to 12.5 mph.  Increasing the visibility of the patrol officers by placing them eight inches above the crowds in the airport, they provide quick, quiet transportation through airport terminals.

The Airport Division fielded the first full-time SJPD Bicycle Patrol in 1992 with two officers.  Now, a third of the officers assigned to the division have been certified through the state-mandated course for police bike-patrol officers.  Bicycles provide added mobility on the heavily congested roadways, parking lots, sidewalks, and in airport terminal buildings at SJC.
