Matcom Telecommunications Inc.
The Bike Team is a valuable tool used by the agency to patrol our clients properties , including parades, and other community events.
The Bike Team operates year-round in varied terrain that ranges from the terminal building, parking garage, roadways to the streets, parks and other assigned areas. Because of the unique capabilities of our protective services officers on bicycles, the Bike Team also assists regular patrol units at special events and during special operations.
The team consists of approximately 10 “core” members who are responsible for the ongoing operations. This core team is supplemented by other officers who have shown an interest in patrolling client properties by bike. Our “stable” of bikes includes standard hard-tail patrol bikes for everyday assignments and dual-suspension, off-road bikes for the more remote areas in the jurisdiction.
Greater efficiency, enhanced customer service, higher visibility and increased fitness are some of the benefits of patrolling on a bicycle. The Bike Team provides quick response to emergency situations and routine calls in the large and often crowded parks. While patrolling the parks, marinas, and other areas the Bike Team can quickly and quietly patrol areas that are hard to access in a patrol car and can effectively respond to areas that are too large to patrol efficiently on foot.
