Police cruiser

Posted: Friday, June 18, 2004

Police Officer Judy Puckett and Chief Bob Gorder cruise on Segway Human Transporters on Tuesday in Sitka. The Sitka police department was loaned the Segways for evaluation by the National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center-Northwest, of Anchorage. The police will use them over the next two months, mostly for parking enforcement, before returning them. The Segways have been tried in Juneau and Anchorage. Gorder said the battery-powered scooters can travel 15 mph and have worked well even on hills and park trails.
