Great Lakes Segway was recently featured on MLive.com, as Muskegon’s police purchased two Recon e-bikes with the community excited about the purchase.
Muskegon Police are using the bikes as part of a stealth patrol, going through high-crime residential areas in a way that doesn’t attract attention like a police car would. These patrols are stepped up, due to increased crime during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We think they’re going to be a great asset,” Lewis said. “These are not electric bikes of yesteryear. They’re very tactically built. They’ll operate fully electronically without pedaling,” Muskegon Police Chief Jeffrey Lewis told MLive.com
