This study attempted to identify whether there was a relation between methods of patrol ad perceived stress levels. Further, whether the large amount of physical activity a bicycle patrol officer experienced during routine patrol affected stress levels. This quantitative study used three survey instruments, the Brunel Lifestyle Physical Activity Questionnaire, and the Operational and Organizational Police Stress Questionnaire by. Thompson and McCreary. The participants in the study included 176 officers from the police departments of Milwaukee, Madison, and Green Bay Wisconsin. Information gathered from the survey instruments were subjected to two-way ANOVA and independent sample t tests, and it was found the p values for each research questions were not significant. The key finding of this study was that there is not a significant difference in mean operational or mean organizational stress between patrol types. Recommendations for further research include finding a larger full-time bicycle unit that includes more females and minorities.
