TOUR OF ALBERTA: WAITING FOR THE ACTION TO START
Four different jackets were on patrol during the Tour of Alberta at WinSport Park on September 2, 2014
Traffic Sheriffs were on duty while Motorcycle Officers from Sheriff, RCMP and CPS escorted the riders around the hill. Visibility is an important factor for all officers - the Sheriff duty jacket has 3M Reflective strands woven into the fabric making them more visible, along with full CSA striping. The RCMP Motorcycle Jacket is a combination of shell and mesh fabrics, fall-rated at 80 km/h. The Sheriff Traffic Department has recently designed their new uniform. The jacket is completely constructed of High-Vis Yellow and Black fall-rated mesh (80 km/h) with reinforced shoulders and elbows - rated at 100 km/h. The CPS officers are outfitted with a long version of our original motorcycle jacket that has a large back cargo pocket
All jackets are equipped with state-of-the-art shoulder and elbow pads, providing maximum protection for the riders. Sheriff has transitioned to the new D3O Motorcycle Pads, which are low-profile and light-weight.
