The Manitowoc Police Department is fortunate that through the generous donation from local dealer Stock’s Harley-Davidson in Manitowoc, trained Manitowoc Police Officers now use two Harley-Davidson Road King motorcycles for speed enforcement, patrol and escort duties.
The Motorcycle Unit consists of nine officers and one Lieutenant. The motorcycles are used for regular patrol duty, special events, and motorcycle charity rides (which do not include stops where alcohol is served).
Officers participate in the Special Olympics Torch Run by escorting the “torch” on its journey. You will also see the motorcycles used in our local parades and at special events.
The motorcycles are not used during inclement weather for safety reasons.
