A safe summer with Sun Youth’s Bike Patrol

Bike Patrol

The Sun Youth Bike Patrol made a strong comeback for a 34th summer. From June 4th to August 10th, 2018, patrollers acted as the eyes and ears of the Montreal Police and were present on streets, bike paths and parks, emphasizing a sense of safety and community in the public spaces of the Greater Montreal area to the delight of the citizens.

This year, the team was composed of 26 young adults and 6 teenagers who were trained in first aid, working in collaboration with police officers from 9 local police stations. As usual, the dedicated patrollers brought assistance to people who were facing problematic situations. This was the case with the exceptional heat wave that hit Quebec this summer. The Sun Youth patrollers assisted police officers and firefighters during their door-to-door rounds to inform the public about the procedures and recommendations to be followed during a heat wave.

The safety and the well-being of senior citizens is a priority for the Sun Youth Bike Patrol. They spent a lot of quality time with senior citizens. They organized different activities, which was very appreciated by everyone. Each week, they offered a physical activity program for seniors living at the Ukrainian Residence of Montreal.

In order to promote public and bicycle safety, Sun Youth’s patrollers delivered different workshops to children in elementary schools, day camps and daycares through Genie Velo program. In addition to their presence at festivals and community events, such as the Mural Festival, the Saint-Jean-Baptiste and Canada Day celebrations, patrollers also organized many sports tournaments for children from various day camps including Sun Youth’s.

The 34th Edition of the Bike Patrol is made possible by the Federal Government and NDP MP for Outremont Thomas Mulcair, 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 and GardaWorld and Bolo Program, who generously provided this year’s uniform. Additionally, Toyota Gabriel 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.
