Police commence bike patrols in the Gold Coast entertainment precincts

Police are getting on their bikes as part of a new patrol aimed at the entertainment precincts on the Gold Coast.

The Entertainment Precinct Group (EPG) Bicycle Patrols will target the Broadbeach and Surfers Paradise tourism areas and will be able to provide a policing response to incidents when they occur.

The EPG Bicycle Patrol will also be able to patrol areas that vehicles are not able to access such as reserves, parks, bikeways and alleyways.

The bike patrol will perform the same work as a general duties officer which will include responding to incidents, high visibility patrols and enforcement activities.
