Lt. Sanders said Wheeling Police already have had a positive impact in the area over the past couple of weeks while officers have been practicing with them.
“Everybody wants to know what they are,” he said. “So community engagement is almost instant by just having the ability to stop, have a conversation and have a positive interaction.”
Chief of Police Lauretta Hill comments on how the Trikkes make officers more visible to the campus community: “Officers can get around, and people will walk up to us just because they want to know what it is.”
“The Trikke Defender has stepped in as an excellent replacement,” says Ben Justus, security supervisor for Pensacola Christian College. “It has significantly more speed than a Segway, which has improved our mobility.”
Lieutenant Thomas Atzert of the Atlanta PD rides the Trikke POSI.TRON.
“I really enjoy using the POSI.TRON,” says Lieutenant Brendon Barth of the Atlanta PD’s Video Integration Center. “It has great mobility, speed, handling and visibility. I’m able to ride on the street and go places cars can’t go. It’s perfect around parks and crowds.”
“Since June when these were delivered, I’ve been in a car maybe once or twice.
That’s less fuel, less maintenance on the vehicles that we’re using. It’s green initiative friendly.”
“The Defender has proven to be more versatile than the Segway PT, and is preferred by me over other electric operations”.
“The TRIKKE Defender has expanded our range of operation in addition to allowing us to mobilize more of our work force to accomplish our mission”.
“As Banco Popular’s physical footprint increased, the need to patrol more areas increased. The need for an efficient patrol vehicle became a major security requirement. And the Trikke Defender was a perfect fit. Extremely easy and very enjoyable. Lightweight, highly efficient, and economic vehicle”.
Trikke’s three-wheel electric vehicle is perfect for moving cargo, especially with the Trikke Cargo System’s modular accessories, including cargo boxes and various trailer configurations. For deliveries and beyond, the professional applications and possibilities are endless.
The verdict is in! How America’s cops are embracing the revolutionary personal electric vehicle that moves like no other, makes officers more approachable and fascinates the public, prompting folks to ask, “where can I get one?”
Police Trikkes are transforming a Texas-size community college system’s police department by giving officers more mobility and making them more visible. Plus, officers speak highly of their new tool in local story.
