Patrolling on two wheels  Bicycling police get drop on unwary criminals  By Vik Jolly  North County News  Ken Seymour remembers vividly the look on the faces of the men dismantling a car's accessories.  The element of surprise was on the side of Seymour and his partner, Trace Gallagher.  "We just rode up to two guys stripping a car," he said.  The arrival was even more unpleasant for the thieves when they discovered they had been caught in the act by police officers on bicycles.  With police written in bold, white letters on the back of their black, cotton T-shirts, the team of officers isn't easy to spot.  CITY WORKERS  And Seymour likes it that way.  "That's the idea," said Seymour, 32. "The criminal element doesn't notice us. Until we are closer to them, they don't know we are officers."  With stealth and accessibility as its primary weapons, the Anaheim Police Department's new bicycle patrol has taken to the streets and hit the ground running. On weekends the officers, who always travel in pairs for safety, can be seen whizzing in and out of hotel and motel parking lots, vigilant of criminal activity.  "It's an eye opener," said Gallagher, 24, a reserve bike patrol officer. "People don't know you're there."  Officers of the nearly two-month old bike patrol have recovered stolen cars, made several narcotics and auto theft arrests and may already have broken a potential car theft ring, officials said.  "It has performed quite well," said Sgt. Kahle Switzer. 'it's a brand new program and so we really didn't know what to expect but we had an idea what we wanted to accomplish."  Being considered for a few years, a bike patrol was activated to reach areas hard to access by car with a three-fold purpose in mind: deterring crime, apprehending criminals and assisting the public.

Planning Commissioner Tom Tait, who attended his first commission meeting Aug. 24, abstained from voting on four of the five agenda items that came before him, citing a conflict of interest on three occasions, city re- -cords show.  "Since I'm so new at this and because of all that's happened, 1 thought it best to error on the conservative side," Tait said.  Some City Council members have called the movement that ousted Hellyer a "witch hunt" and a "political game" that has smeared the reputation of Hellyer and the commission itself.  "If you're going to do something like this to Glenn (Hellyer) then you'd better take another look at some of the other members of that commission," Councilman Irv Pickler said.  Hellyer was voted out of office Aug. 18 after it was learned that he had a S20.000 investment in Yves Bistro and is the leasing agent for the Rose and Crown restaurant and bar. both of which are receiving financial in centives to relocate in the city's downtown redevelopment area.

"Well, we're glad the majority of the council decided to suspend any further privatization but we all ■^now it's an election year," Eric-  son said.  During the past two years, 172 city jobs have been eliminated due to a combination of budget cuts and contracting services to the private sector.  Of the 172 positions, six were  eliminated through layoffs. Forty were cut when workers took earlv retirements. The rest were shifted into other city departments.
