NEW Bike Patrol Program a ‘Dandy’ Idea
Officer Wilson Dandy, a retired City of Aiken Police Officer, will soon be riding a different kind of “cruiser” as part of Aiken Regional’s new Bike Patrol Program to deter crime. Officer Dandy will patrol the hospital’s parking lots and manage properties on bicycle, allowing him to monitor areas that are difficult to access with a golf cart. Aiken Regional extends its thanks to the City of Aiken for the loan of the bicycle, and to Officer Dandy for his participation!
NEW NEUROSCIENCE CENTER now open at Aiken Regional
