The northernmost LEBA certified bike officers now in Yellowknife, Canada

Education Coordinator Kevin deVillenfagne has just returned returned to Calgary, Alberta, Canada after teaching a level B course to a group of Bylaw Officers from Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada. Yellowknife now has the distinct honor of being the northernmost LEBA group on the planet.

Yellowknife gets 8 months of winter, and then 4 very short months of Spring Summer and Fall. Kevin shared has shared a class photo and a map  to show just how far north Yellowknife is. They can be overtaken as the northernmost LEBA certified bike patrol should we teach a class in Fairbanks or Nome, (or in Finland or Sweden). For now, however, they are it.

Congratulations on your accomplishment Yellowknife Bylaw Officers and welcome to LEBA.IMG_2305 Map.Yellowknife

LEBA in the news. Our training used with great success at RNC.

Secret weapon in handling RNC protesters: police bikes.  During the first two days of largely peaceful demonstrations here, the centerpiece of the law enforcement management strategy has been the simple mountain bike.

Instructors welcome to the new web page!

The web page is nearing completion.  Instructors as before your user name is “LEBA” with your instructor number. All user names are 8 digits so if you have a three digit instructor number put a zero before your number.  Example LEBA0123.  At the login you can reset your password to get into the page.  The website will send you an e-mail with your temporary password.  If you do not get an e-mail it is because we have an old e-mail address for you.  If this happens contact Ben Kaufman at bikecop_901@yahoo.com to get it sorted out.

Thank you for your patience and be safe out there.
