On June 10th the Sun Youth Bike Patrol was officially sworn-in by Montreal Police Director Marc Parent.

On June 10th the Sun Youth Bike Patrol was officially sworn-in by Montreal Police Director Marc Parent. From June 8th to August 14th, 2015, the patrol will be present on streets and bike paths, and in parks and playgrounds, emphasizing a sense of safety and community in the public spaces of the Greater Montreal area.

Trained in first aid and other public safety skills, the 28 patrollers will also deliver different workshops on public and bicycle safety, and be a presence at festivals and community events. Wherever they are, they will act as the eyes and ears of the Montreal Police, working closely with 9 local police stations across Montreal and the West-Island.

The 31st Edition of the Bike Patrol is made possible by the Federal Government and Thomas Mulcair, leader of the official opposition, as well as the Quebec Ministry of Public Security and Jacques Chagnon, President of the National Assembly. Local businesses also make an indispensable contribution to the Bike Patrol, including Dorel Industries, who supply the durable mountain bikes used by Sun Youth’s Patrollers throughout the summer. Additionally, Toyota Gabriel and General Director Nazih Chemali will provide the patrol with an administrative vehicle. The Sun Youth Bike Patrol is also made possible by financial support from the Gustav Levinschi Foundation.
