  • Our Services - Bicycle Patrol

    Smiths Falls Police Service launched a Bicycle Patrol program in 2000 with the support of Smiths Falls Crime Stoppers. The service currently has two fully equipped police bicycles which officers ride throughout the spring and summer months.

    The bicycles have proven to be a valuable tool, enabling officers to respond rapidly and effectively to calls for service in areas where cruisers would be at a disadvantage. The bicycles also provide officers with the ability to ride up quickly and often un-expectantly on suspicious persons and activities. As well, persons fleeing police on foot can generally not out run an officer on a bicycle.

    Bicycle patrol is also of great benefit for public events such as concerts, sporting events, festivals, road races and other large gathering, enabling officers to move quickly and effectively through large crowds.

    It is for these reasons that the Smiths Falls Police Service considers Bicycle Patrol one of its primary functions and will continue to make it a priority.
