The SPVM now has a female motorcycle officer.
Policewoman Monelle Hébert recently became the first female motorcycle officer in the history of the Service. It was no easy task and to qualify, she successfully completed a demanding selection process that only about 30% of applicants pass to land the job.
According to the press release, the process is long and difficult to pass. Using the motorbike, which weighs nearly 600 lbs., the officer must undergo a series of road tests over a span of four weeks that demand remarkable precision and agility.
“On behalf of everyone at the Service, we salute Constable Hébert for this historic achievement. Congratulations!” stated the SPVM.
