Northamptonshire Police has boosted 8 greener motorbikes, making it “first in the world.” The new bikes are powered by electric motors, making them more environmentally friendly and significantly quieter than traditional petrol-powered bikes.
The decision to switch to electric motors was made in order to reduce the force’s carbon footprint and to make policing more sustainable in the long-term. The bikes will be used for a variety of tasks including patrolling, community engagement, and responding to emergencies.
This is a huge step forward for Northamptonshire Police and sets a precedent for other forces around the world to follow. It shows that they are committed to reducing their environmental impact and making sustainability a priority.
The new bikes are just one part of the force’s wider green initiatives, which also include installing solar panels and electric vehicle charging points. With these initiatives, Northamptonshire Police is leading the way in making policing more environmentally friendly.
