The 2020 Great Lakes Police Motorcycle Training Seminar (GLPMTS) is being hosted by the Waterloo Regional Police Service from August 19th to August 22nd, 2020. This exciting 4 day event will attract police motorcycle officers and civilian riders from across North America. The event concludes on August 22nd with a thrilling competition that will test the participants on the knowledge and skills that they have acquired. 

The GLPMTS offers a unique and essential training opportunity that provides motorcycle riders with the skills and knowledge to safely operate motorcycles. This is especially important for police motorcycle officers during the course of their duties. The seminar allows officers from across North America to come together to train and learn in a safe and encouraging environment. 

Seminar goals include:

  • Establish and promote safe motorcycle riding skills within the police community

  • Promote awareness of the police motorcycle officer in the public arena as a safe, responsible motorcycle rider

  • Establish a cohesive fraternity and encourage kinship in the law enforcement motorcycle community

  • Support local and regional charities affiliated with the police community

For over 20 years the seminar has provided this vital training while raising tens of thousands of dollars for charity.  In 2020 the Ontario Police Memorial will be the primary charitable recipients.
