BURLINGTON — Two new E-bikes have been added to the Burlington Police Department’s fleet.
The announcement was made online on the department’s Facebook page on Aug. 11.
Local organizations, businesses pitch in
The agency purchased the TREK Patrol E-Bikes as a result of a donation from the group, Racine County S.O.L.E. – Support Our Law Enforcement.
In addition, the new E-bikes were outfitted with additional equipment from a local business, The Bike Room.
E-Bikes play role in creating safer community
“These bikes will allow our officers to cover more area within the city, as well as provide officers more time to interact with citizens as they are out and about,” shares the department.
The police department reports that these pedal-assisted bicycles utilize an electric motor, which engages at the operator’s demands.
The bicycles are compliant with all State and Local Ordinances.
