Mountain Bike Unit

The Grande Prairie Mountain Bike Unit consists of members of the RCMP working in partners to patrol throughout the City of Grande Prairie from May until September. Their primary duties are to enforce Provincial Statutes, Federal Statutes, and Criminal Code offences.

The Mountain Bike Unit enables the RCMP members to be highly visible and to access areas which may be impractical for police vehicles. The Mountain Bike Unit also participates in various special events held during the summer. This active police presence opens communication between the police and the public, as cyclists are more publicly accessible then vehicular patrols may be.
