The Bikes Are Back-Victoria Police Unveil Motorcycle Unit
I've always thought motorcycle cops were the coolest. Ever since the 1973 movie starring Robert Blake 'Electra Glide In Blue' that I saw as a kid, and before he was on trial for murder, that is. Cruising the streets on his Harley looked like the ultimate. Well now after a 10 year absence, motorcycles will be cruising the streets of Victoria once again.
Thanks to the Victoria 100 Club who purchased the bike, a new Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Unit was unveiled last week. Senior Patrol Officer Brandon is the first of two officers who will be riding on patrol, which Chief J.J. Craig says will allow the department to cover more ground that a patrol car would.
