Ray White Sippy Downs is proud to have teamed up with our local Police Station, donating 2 specialised mountain bikes giving our police men and woman the opportunity to do regular bike patrols of those hard to get to areas, not accessible by patrol car. Such areas include the Sunshine Coast University Campus, schools, bike paths, parks and shopping centres.
The Sippy Downs police have conducted bike patrols in the past by borrowing bikes from neighbouring stations, however now having a dedicated fleet of bikes provides the flexibility to perform bike patrols whenever required.
Police officers undertake a three day enhanced skills course to perform bike patrols. Currently six officers from Sippy Downs have qualified and further will be trained in the future.
Having the ability to perform bike patrols will assist with their aim and focus to continue to work closely with the community to make Sippy Downs a safer place to live and conduct business.
