Chicago Segways For Police Officers And Security Patrols
Got a lot of area to patrol and fewer officers for coverage? The Segway® PT can move an officer, smoothly and quietly, at 2-3 times walking speed. It can easily double the amount of area a walking officer can cover, and can transition immediately from walking speed (3 mph) to sprinting speed (12.5 mph) when an officer needs to get somewhere fast without causing alarm.
A Friendlier Force
The Segway® PT is the ultimate icebreaker. Its presence facilitates conversation and encourages effective community policing. Officers are more approachable when they are on a Segway® PT than when they are sitting in a cruiser or riding on a bike. Plus, officers get all the attention of horseback patrols without any of the feeding, grooming or housekeeping.
Segway Experience can help you customize your department's Segways to meet the challenging needs of security. Customizations include cargo frames, lights, sirens, GPS units, as well as custom decals and badging to ensure high visibility and the added level of comfort and security that goes along with knowing an officer is nearby.
