2019 Great Lakes Police Motorcycle Training Seminar (GLPMTS)

February 28th, 2019 Posted in Rodeos | Comments Off on 2019 Great Lakes Police Motorcycle Training Seminar (GLPMTS)

Good afternoon,

My name is Andrew Hinds, I am a police officer with the Greater Sudbury Police Service . I am also the chair of the 2019 Great Lakes Police Motorcycle Training Seminar (GLPMTS)

We are in our 21st year. Our event was created to provide police services from across the province standardized training for motorcycle deployment. Our committee is comprised of police officers from across the province of Ontario and our event moves to a different city each year and hosted by a different police agency each year. We are also currently the only police motorcycle rodeo in Eastern Canada. The GLPMTS has grown throughout the years and now draws participants from all across North America. In the past we have had officers from Quebec, Halifax, Michigan state, New York state, California, Great Brittan, Aruba and of course, our motor officers from across Ontario. For the first time, the 2019 GLPMTS will be opening a civilian class where non police members can participate, learn and compete alongside of police motor officers.

GLPMTS will be held in Sudbury, Ontario from August 14th to August 17th 2019. This four day event will have guest speakers providing educational presentations relating to safe motorcycle operation, provide hands on instructional training and finish with exciting motorcycle competitions to give participants an opportunity to put their new skills to use. Our event will be held at 2416 Long lake road, which is a large shopping complex. This will be a high traffic area with a lot of exposure to the public. GLPMTS supports all of our sponsors through promotion of their brands onsite during the event and through our website and social media.

Our event operates through the support of community partners and businesses. All of our proceeds go to charity. Some of the 2019 charities will be the Ontario Police Memorial Fund, Sudbury Food Bank and the Sudbury Jumpstart program. I am asking if Setcom would consider becoming one of our 2019 GLPMTS sponsors. I believe your product fits perfectly with our event as it is geared to the police motor officer community. We are looking for a financial contribution to assist in the costs of running this event or product that can be used , given away as prizes or added to our registration swag bags. As a sponsor, you are also welcome to attend our event and put your product on display/sale to the participants and public.

My goal is to make 2019 a monumental year in funds raised for charity. With community partners such as Setcom, I believe we can achieve this and leave Sudbury’s event with a legacy that other cities will strive to replicate. Further information can be found on our website www.glpmts.ca

I look forward to discussing this partnership more.

Thank you for your support,

Andrew Hinds

Mid-Atlantic Police Motorcycle Rodeo

December 20th, 2016 Posted in Rodeos | Comments Off on Mid-Atlantic Police Motorcycle Rodeo

2017-mid-atlantic.jpg

The Mid-Atlantic Police Motorcycle Rodeo was the “brain child” of Corporal A.D. Johnson, a motorcycle police officer with the Prince George’s County Police Department, Prince George’s County Maryland. In 1979, the first rodeo was held, to build up the skills and working relationships of the motorcycle officers in the Washington Metropolitan Area. Tragically in 1982, Corporal Johnson was killed in an on-duty motorcycle accident. In the spirit of Corporal A.D. Johnson, the organization continues today, heading into its 34th year of operation.

The rodeos have continued throughout the years, through the efforts of many dedicated volunteers–mostly of police officers, but also many civilians, whose help has made it possible.

In the future, the Mid-Atlantic Police Motorcycle Riding Committee, Inc. hopes to continue to grow and to be of service to motorcycle police officers at large, promoting safe riding skills and increased cooperation between agencies.

7th Annual Spring Classic Police Motorcycle Training and Skills Competition

November 1st, 2016 Posted in Rodeos | Comments Off on 7th Annual Spring Classic Police Motorcycle Training and Skills Competition

2017-gptx.jpg

The Grand Prairie Police Department Motor Unit is proud to host the 7th Annual Spring Classic Police Motorcycle Training and Skills Competition. The 2017 event will take place April 19-22, 2017. The main competition days will be Friday and Saturday, April 21 and 22.  Thanks to Grand Prairie Premium Outlets and Longhorn Harley-Davidson for allowing us a new location for the Spring Classic at 2950 W. Interstate 20.

The five day event brings together officers from across Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and as far away as Tennessee to take part in valuable training to keep them safe while performing their normal duties. The competition allows the officers to have fun while showing off their riding skills in front of spectators and having an opportunity to interact with the public in a non-enforcement role, through entry fees, civilian donations made at the event, and our sponsors we are able to make a sizeable contribution to the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics, and in turn support the Special Olympic Athletes and Special Olympics movement as a whole.

In 2014 we were glad to be able to bring in a new element, hosting the 1st annual Spring Classic Civilian Motorcycle Competition in conjunction with the police competition. This will be the our third year to welcome skilled civilian riders to take part, competing on the same courses as the officers.

Sponsorship opportunities are available to help make this event another huge success.
