Enhancing Bike Patrol Community by Community
Hear what our Public Safety units are saying:
Chelsea Police Department, MA
"I was able to get the bike to last a full 8 hour shift last week when I was assigned as Rt. 12. I've responded to several calls quickly and once I arrived I had plenty of energy and did not feel winded." - Officer Paul Marchese
"Pertaining to the new electric bikes we've been using, I can personally tell you that they literally are spectacular. The assistance they provide makes biking, even on the hottest days, completely tolerable. The guys Love them!
Guys have been arguing over who gets to use them to be totally honest!" - Officer Joseph Stutto
"This started several conversations with citizens and they were happy to see me on the bike and out of the cruiser." - Officer Paul Marchese
Methuen Police Department, MA
"Our eBikes will allow us to respond faster to calls for service. We have enjoyed the positive reactions from citizens who have interacted with officers on patrol in the neighborhood."
- Chief Solomon
Marblehead Police Department, MA
"When my officers need to bike several miles to a call, they can arrive exhausted. They need to arrive fresh and ready for the call. Now they have a new way to do that." - Police Chief Robert Picariello
Beverly and Barnstable, MA
"RRT eBikes are the new standard in police bike patrol. They are built specifically for rapid response and community policing."
- Chief John Finnegan Ret.
Arlington Police Department, MA
“Partially powered by a small motor, the design allows officers to effectively patrol the community, especially the heavily traveled Minuteman Commuter Bikeway,and reach destinations not accessible by cruiser.”
"This new eBike is a great addition to our already established bike fleet.”- Arlington Police Chief Fredrick Ryan

"In May of this year, we introduced the eBike to several of our residential community security patrols. This has proven to be extremely successful. In one community, the eBike is used in addition to the security patrol vehicle. This reduces vehicle operating expenses as well as increases our patrol mobility in areas not accessible by other vehicle types. The eBike is preferred by our officers over the standard 12 and 18 speed bikes. The officers feel the eBike greatly improves their ability to come upon unwelcomed events without being noticed. In another community, the officers average 70+ miles a day per eBikes with 24-hour operations daily. We utilize two eBikes plus a full-time patrol vehicle. The eBikes patrol the community streets, playgrounds, community green belt areas, several shopping plazas and apartment complexes. The officers in this community rave about the advantages of the eBike. The eBike allows them to respond to a call for service in half the time, without being winded upon arrival. In our Nevada heat, the eBike extends our officers patrol time, while reducing fatigue. The officers remain more alert and able to respond. In a recent incident, a young male was spotted breaking car windows and conducting vehicle invasions. As our officers responded to the area, the young man took off on his bike. The ensuing chase ended with a subject not being able to out-run the eBike and the pursuing officers. The exhausted individual was easily detained and turned over to local law enforcement. We strongly endorse the eBike as an excellent and effective everyday patrolling vehicle.- Tom Harper, G4S USA Private Security
