Police Motorcycles 2

The electric motorcycles -- not much larger than University Police's mountain bikes added to the department 15 years ago, as noted by bicycle officer Frank Ball -- each hold a charge that lasts about 8 to 10 hours, or about the length of an officer's typical shift. The size of the vehicles makes them easy to maneuver in traffic and will be useful during home football games and quiet to operate on campus while classes are in session.
