Formed in 1975, the Motorcycle Unit is a highly visible and mobile force used for selective duties; these include traffic enforcement, emergency calls for service, assistance to patrol officers, funeral and parade escorts, community events and school displays.
Officers assigned to the Motorcycle Unit must successfully complete a two-week procedures and operation of police motorcycles course. The training is physically and mentally demanding and has a 60% failure rating. Park Police utilizes the Harley-Davidson Electra Glide police motorcycle. This vehicle provides reliable maneuverability in congested areas and restricted spaces with the required speed and handling of a police motorcycle.
