Teen patrollers are back!
For another summer, the teen patrollers joined the Sun Youth Bike Patrol and will also act as the eyes and ears of the Montreal Police Department.
On July 10th, 2018, Mr. Vincent Richer, SPVM Chef Inspector and Liaison Officer for Sun Youth proceeded to the swearing in of 6 new teen patrollers, a division regrouping young committed people aged between 14 and 17 years old. As in previous years, Sun Youth offers teens the opportunity to work with the bike patrol so they will gain insight into working within the Montreal community, acquire knowledge of police work and become ambassadors for their generation. They receive the same training as the regular patrollers (first aid, bicycle technical training, etc.). Throughout the summer, the teenagers will work in tandem with an experienced adult patroller at festivals, community events and fundraisers for local organizations. In this way, they will be able to maximize their apprenticeship with the goals of enriching their knowledge about community-oriented career paths and providing insight into some of the possibilities available to them in the future.
Sun Youth wishes them a happy summer!
