The Oceanside RCMP are putting a renewed focus on proactive mountain bike patrols. Recently, additional Auxiliary Officers and regular members were trained to patrol on bikes in an effort to have more eyes on the streets. Staff Sergeant Marc Pelletier, an avid cyclist and Police Mountain Bike Instructor wants officers on bikes patrolling special events, problem areas, beaches and parks this summer.
You get a different perspective on a bike, it’s an amazing way for police to proactively patrol. – States S/Sgt. Pelletier seen below with Auxiliary Officer Dally.
