Sun Youth Bike Patrol

Sun Youth Bike Patrol – For the 33rd year, the Sun Youth Bike Patrol will act as the eyes and ears of the Montreal Police and will be present, throughout the summer, on streets, bike paths, parks and playgrounds, emphasizing a sense of safety and community in the public spaces of the Greater Montreal area.

On May 30th, 21 bike patrollers were sworn in by the Assistant director of the SPVM, Stéphane Bélanger. Trained in first aid and other public safety skills, the bike patrollers will work closely with local police stations across Montreal and the West-Island for a period of 10 weeks, starting on June 5th and ending on August 11th, 2017. They will also be present at festivals, community events, and fundraisers for local organizations. Due to the flooding we have experienced across Quebec, particularly in the West Island, two additional bike patrollers will be assigned, this summer, to help people who need assistance in Pierrefonds-Roxboro borough.

The 33rd Edition of the Bike Patrol program would not be possible without the support of private businesses and different levels of government such as the Federal Government and Thomas Mulcair, leader of the NPD, as well as the Quebec Ministry of Public Security and Jacques Chagnon, President of the National Assembly. Local businesses also made 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 Moishe’s restaurant, 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 the financial support from the Gustav Levinschi Foundation.
