The Motor Unit was started in 2006 and is used primarily for traffic enforcement throughout the District in school zones. Motor Officers ride Harley Davidson Police Electra Glides motorcycles. These vehicles allow for easier maneuverability through the tight confines of parking lots and school properties. The motor unit does issue citations for traffic violations and cite them to the local courts of jurisdiction. Motor Officers are also used for special events and escort duties, and work closely with other department's motor units.
Our two motor units are on pace to conduct over 1000 traffic stops in school zones for the 20-21 school year.Data as of 05/20/2021
