Jacobs Well Beat officers have extended their driving skills to incorporate all terrain vehicles (ATVs). We are now able to utilise this type of vehicle on the various terrains within the division after completing the full day training course recently on the Gold Coast.
The ATV is a necessity in the area due to the demographics of sand, cane fields and beach areas. It is not like any other beat division as the area is a mixture of rural and residential land.
Even more so, with this vehicle the we will be able to patrol around dense areas and manoeuvre where our 4WDs are unable to access.
The ATVs are used throughout the Gold Coast District and are equipped with police decals and lights.
