Law Enforcement Scooters

Law Enforcement Scooters Effective Patrol Enforcement

Some communities are beginning to turn to law enforcement scooters as another means of providing transportation to law enforcement officers who patrol parking lots and other downtown congested city areas. The electric and gas powered scooters and mopeds are an excellent way of easily getting around a large parking lot to enforce security. Officers can ride the scooter or moped over many miles in large parking lots and move quickly if called to deal with an enforcement issue.

While some communities may view a scooter or moped for law enforcement as not that important, a law enforcement scooter or moped can provide an officer with an easy means to move around the larger parking lots and allows the officer to respond quickly to a call in another location without having to walk or return to a car that is not close by. Law enforcement scooters and mopeds are just part of the many steps that police and security departments are taking to upgrade their departments and provide the latest tools to use to in enforcing and upholding the laws. The moped or scooter will use less gas as well.

Scooters and mopeds used by the police can be equipped with special additions to provide saddlebags to hold various items that the police will need during the course of their duties. Electric scooters have a limitation in terms of the range they can travel on any given day before a recharge, while gas powered scooters do not have the same limitation. Scooters and mopeds can travel ten to fifteen miles per hour, which is more than quick enough for a crowded parking lot. These scooters can also navigate between vehicles. Scooters and mopeds are a new tool for the police department in upholding the laws.
