Benefits Of Segways For Law Enforcement Agencies
As the world is opening up again, community festivals and large gatherings are becoming very popular, once again. This means that security forces policing sensitive public areas are faced with a lot more ground to cover, and need the means to do that efficiently and cost-effectively.
By investing in Segways for your security force or police department, you’re able to more easily travel where patrol cars can’t drive. And, from an economic perspective, you will be saving considerable excess funds. On average, one patrol car can range from a low of $30,000 to $60,000 or more. You can purchase 4 to 8 Segways for that same amount of money. This means that 4 to 8 individuals can be out there canvassing and securing high-risk areas, at a lower cost.
In addition to providing faster response times compared to officers on foot patrol, officers on Segways can move up to 12.5 miles per hour. This factor, alone, offers greater visibility and increases community engagement which helps officers integrate into the public. And, if you are concerned about our environment, the Segway alternative is also very eco-friendly.
A few of the different Michigan law enforcement agencies with whom we’ve worked, to date, include Grand Rapids, Holland, Port Huron, Sterling Heights, Center Line, Franklin, Shelby Township, and Walled Lake. All of them have reported a higher level of efficiency, and ability to better serve their communities through investment in alternative mobility vehicles.
