Force volunteers returning to deliver free motorbike safety training for public

A group of volunteers from Staffordshire Police will once again be delivering free, award-winning motorcycle safety workshops in Staffordshire.

Sergeant Rob Gilligan from the Central Motorway Policing Group (CMPG) and a number of serving and former members of the emergency services will deliver the workshops this year – called Biker Down.

The team of presenters have years of specialist experience and knowledge around operational motorcycling, advanced first aid and collision investigation. The workshops are aimed at motorcyclists of all ages and experiences and are completely free of charge. They involve three modules – including scene safety, casualty care and rider skills – and each participant receives a bespoke first aid kit, designed to be carried on a motorcycle, along with a Biker Down pin-badge.

This year’s workshops will be launched as part of CMPG’s Two Wheels operation, in support of the National Roads Partnership campaigns calendar. The first workshop will be held at the Staffordshire Honda Dealership in Newcastle-under-Lyme on Saturday 22 April, where representatives of advanced riding training providers will be on hand to offer advice and information to those in attendance.

A limited number of tickets are available for this event and two future dates, which will be held at Staffordshire Police Headquarters on Saturday 27 May and Saturday 10 June.
