E-Scooters: High Voltage Policing in the USA
By Rob Hitch
In recent years, electric scooters have become a popular mode of transportation for urban commuters, providing a convenient and environmentally-friendly alternative to cars and public transport. As cities and residents continue to embrace this new technology, it’s not just the general public that’s benefiting from the e-scooter revolution; police forces in the United States have also started incorporating electric scooters into their operations.
One of the primary advantages of electric scooters for police officers is the increased mobility and accessibility they offer. In crowded urban environments, navigating traffic and reaching crime scenes or emergencies quickly can be a challenge. Electric scooters allow officers to bypass traffic congestion, enabling them to respond to incidents faster than they would in a traditional patrol car. Furthermore, their compact size and ability to maneuver through tight spaces make them ideal for patrolling pedestrian-heavy areas like parks, campuses, and downtown districts.
How adding Trikke Positrons to their fleet is helping this police department reinvent patrol and strengthen community engagement

The personal patrol vehicles offer several surprising benefits at a sprawling downtown college campus.
Dallas College was one of the first two police departments in Texas to purchase the Trikke Positron, a three-wheeled personal patrol vehicle. Bridging the gap between foot and vehicle patrols, the “Trikke” – as it is affectionately known – quickly and easily navigates through traffic and crowded areas, making it ideal for patrolling the El Centro campus.
Becoming an Electric Police World
Cars can sometimes cause a disconnect…because the officers spend more time in their vehicles.
The Trikke Positron from Trikke Professional Mobility (Trikke) is a “personal mobility device” that is often used by law enforcement for community engagement. The Positron “offers law enforcement an electric mobility vehicle that bridges the gap between traditional squad cars and foot patrol.”1 Featuring a multi-terrain capability with full suspension and an all-wheel drive system, the vehicle can navigate sidewalks, streets, parking garages, and hallways—and allows for a quicker response time than cars in congested areas.

The summit will include over 200 speakers, 250 exhibitors, and more than 15,000 attendees who will explore emerging technologies and cutting-edge solutions designed to redefine the future of policing.
Trikke Professional Mobility – Transforming How Agencies Patrol
The use of electric vehicles has grown rapidly over the years. Electric mobility offers solutions for short trips and low weight as well as long trips and heavyweight. It comes as no surprise that electric vehicles do not have combustion engines, so they stop tons of greenhouse gases from being released, which in return helps the fight against the effects of climate change, and improve people’s quality of life as a result. There are plenty of reasons why electric mobility is considered essential to achieve sustainable mobility.
Efficiency on the Move – Trikke Professional Mobility Mobilizes with Lower Fuel Costs and Quicker Responses
Transparency and trust between law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve are critical to community stability, officer safety, and efficient policing. In addition, police officers, community members, and political officials all play critical roles in advancing positive public safety interactions. At a time when law enforcement is evaluating its policies and procedures to increase community-police engagements, mobility plays a vital role.
Trikke wants police patrolling cities on these hilarious 45 mph standing electric tricycles
… and they actually look fun enough that I’ve got a half a mind to enroll in my local police academy, if it comes with a standard-issue patrol trike.

Trikke's electric personal police vehicle can transform how your agency patrols
By Police1 Staff
One of the most important components of strengthening a police agency’s relationship with the community is engagement. But creating true bonds with the public requires more than sporadic moments of reaching out; it isn’t something that should just take the form of one-off community policing events like Coffee with a Cop or town hall meetings.
To truly foster meaningful relationships with the citizens of a jurisdiction, officers need to engage with them daily. Among the more effective ways of creating opportunities for informal interactions is getting cops out of the patrol car and onto the street.
Trikke’s Positron electric all-wheel drive personal patrol vehicle enables officers to be out with the citizens they serve while reducing fuel costs and providing quicker response times for beat cops.
Here’s why your agency should add the Positron to your fleet:
