Citizens Volunteer Bike Patrol
The Maple Ridge Volunteer Bicycle Patrol Program sponsored by ICBC, launched in August 2003, serves as a crime deterrent during rides through local neghbourhoods. The main focus of the Program is being eyes and ears for the RCMP, reporting all suspicious, criminal and nuisance behaviour they observe. This involves team patrols maintaining contact with their own dispatcher and the RCMP dispatch as needed.
