Officers assigned to the Motorcycle Unit have successfully completed a forty hour training course that strived to teach officers the special balance and precision maneuvering techniques of the police motorcycle. The Plymouth Police Department utilizes Harley-Davidson Police motorcycles.
Motorcycles are especially valuable to the department because they allow officers to work their way through heavy traffic that would stop a conventional cruiser and they are economical to operate. They are also capable of going places conventional cruisers simply cannot go; such a narrow alleys and pathways through wooded areas. They are also highly valuable for patrolling the highly congested beach and waterfront areas in the summertime.
