The Bike Section consists of four Police Officers who work in two person teams in the Community Engagement Division. The Bike Section actively pursues opportunities that support the Saanich Police Department Strategic Priorities of Community Engagement, Diversity and Partnerships. The Bike Section takes a leadership role in supporting those experiencing homelessness in Saanich and works with partner agencies to find suitable housing.

The Bike Officers dedicate time to attend community events and always look for new ways in building relationships with citizens. The Bike Officers work closely with the community, listening to their concerns, and together find solutions to the issue.

Bike Officers are unique in the sense that they are on a bicycle, are more approachable than a patrol vehicle, and the public can easily interact with them.  Bike Officers ride the Saanich trails, through parks and patrol residential and commercial areas moving around buildings and obstacles with ease.
