Oceanside RCMP bike patrols will return this summer after a two-year hiatus.

RCMP members recently attended a one-week training course to learn specialized riding techniques for police bike patrols and Const. Nixon and Const. Espenhain had an opportunity to use their new skills this past weekend at the Qualicum Beach Family Day.

“Police visibility was identified as a top policing priority in the community,” said Staff Sgt. Travis De Coene. “Bike patrols are a great way for officers to quickly get to places that police cars cannot access and people can expect to see our bicycle officers patrolling various locations this summer including downtown cores, parks and community events.”
