University Police Department

New Electric Motorcycles

The University Police Department recently purchased two electric motorcycles, manufactured by Zero Motorcycles in Scott's Valley. In addition to being environmentally friendly zero emission vehicles, the motorcycles will facilitate police response to incidents on campus and improve visibility. They will also aid in UPD's education and enforcement efforts to enhance pedestrian safety on campus with regard to non-vehicular traffic. Several UPD Officers will undergo training in the safe operation of these motorcycles and we hope to have them in service by the beginning of the Spring semester.
