On the North Shore, you may even see officers driving a quad known as a Gator

Residents can expect to see a police presence on two wheels this summer.

Kamloops RCMP Supt. Syd Lecky said bike patrols will begin in the coming months downtown and on the Tranquille corridor in North Kamloops.

He said officers who liaise with schools during the school year will be training on bikes this spring.

“For the downtown and North Shore, I think bikes are a great way,” Lecky said. “Because before you know it, we’re on you and you don’t hear us coming.”

Additionally, police will be experimenting in North Kamloops with use of a quad known as a Gator.

Lecky said staffing limited opportunity last summer to have the increased and more mobile presence on city streets.
