Zero Motorcycles in Law Enforcement
For the second time this week, Zero Motorcycles reports another law enforcement agency purchased its Zero DS Police Motorcycle for patrols.
The latest is the Foothill-De Anza Community College Police Department, which purchased two 2013 Zero DS Police Motorcycles to enhance its campus patrol feet.
Zero Motorcycles says “with numerous narrow pathways on and off campus, the Zero Police DS Motorcycles provide a new solution to a safe and secure campus. With the recent purchase by Foothill-De Anza Community College District, the Zero DS Police Motorcycles are continuing to be utilized by security and law enforcement departments to meet the demands of today’s officers due to its ease of use, maneuverability, near silent ride and green initiatives.”
Ron Levine (Chief of Police, Foothill-De Anza Community College District) says: “We learned about Zero Motorcycles through the San Jose State University Police Department program and their successful use of Zero’s Police line-up. We simply couldn’t believe the incredible power and the overall performance the Zero DS had to offer.
“Our officers can now more efficiently do their job, while also operating without the reliance on fuel, keeping with our College District’s commitment to sustainability.”
Besides the college, the Los Angeles Police Department is currently evaluating Zero DS Police Motorcycles.
John Lloyd (Vice President of Global Sales, Zero Motorcycles) says: “The Zero DS continues to be a draw for both security and law enforcement departments on a global level with its ability to handle multiple terrains and obstacles. The continued expansion of police and security departments exploring and adding Zero Motorcycles to their fleets is increasing in demand.
“Whether the Bogota Police Department in South America or Foothill-De Anza Community College District in Los Altos Hills and Cupertino, law enforcement agencies alike look to Zero for its innovation, functionality, stealthy appeal and overall electric experience. We are excited for the Foothill-De Anza Community College District Police Department to begin utilizing their new bikes for continued successful patrols and campus security.”
