The Scottsdale Police Department (SPD) received a grant from the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety in May of 2017. This Grant, #2017-405d-052, provided the opportunity for SPD to purchase two new police package motorcycles.
The new motorcycles will enhance SPD Motor Officers’ ability to enforce traffic law and safety as well as increase DUI patrols throughout the city. The motorcycles will play an integral part in pedestrian safety in the Scottsdale Downtown Entertainment District and other active pedestrian locations within the city.
The new Police Motorcycles are equipped with the latest emergency light technology that enhances officer safety both during day time and night time patrols.
In general, police motorcycles provide faster response times due to their ability to move in and out of congested areas more easily than traditional police vehicles.
SPD would like to thank the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety for their continued support in making the City of Scottsdale’s streets safe.
