Sovereign Base Area Police commit to enhanced road safety


RoADAR Cyprus, the road safety charity has been actively involved in training two SBA police officers who have succeeded in becoming Police Advanced Riding Instructors.

Police Constables Marcos Michaelides and Enis Suleyman who are both RoSPA Gold Award advanced motorcyclists have now taken their skills to a much higher level and are proud to have become professional Instructors.

SBA Police recognize that better trained riders are safer riders. They respect their bikes and the roads, riding in a safe, smooth and controlled manner.

All officers who are expected to patrol on motor bikes can now look forward to being trained in advanced riding skills by Marcos and Enis.

Their Trainers, Steve Tucker and Mike Moorby, who are Advanced Riding Instructors and Examiners for RoADAR Cyprus are very pleased with the commitment shown by the SBA Police to improve road safety for their officers.

Steve Tucker says, “The quality of training we provided demanded full commitment to achieve their qualification. Marcos and Enis’s theoretical knowledge, riding skills and instructional techniques have been raised to a level which are world class. It is rewarding to know that these new skills will benefit the public as well, when professional advice and guidance will be on offer at events and wherever their duties interact with the public.”

If you have a wish to become an advanced driver or rider or just want to be involved with a forward thinking and highly motivated group of people committed to making the roads of Cyprus safer for everyone, we look forward to hearing from you.
