PHPD Motorcycle Unit


In 2013, in response to the increased need for high visibility patrols to help in the suppression of crime and traffic accidents, the Port Huron Police Department established its Motorcycle unit. With help from community members, Harley Davidson Motorcycles were purchased and deployed into selected areas. The Motorcycles are highly mobile, fuel efficient, and can be utilized where a normal patrol unit cannot. In addition, by utilizing non traditional patrol vehicles in the neighborhoods, it has proven to be an effective community relations tool and has helped to strengthen the communication between the Police Officers and citizens, focused on improving the quality of life issues in the neighborhoods.  

About The Team

The Port Huron Police Officers assigned to the unit have all received at least 80 hours of specialized training in the safe, effective and efficient operation of the Motorcycles prior to enforcement operations. The Officers are also required to attend an annual training refresher to maintain their skill levels in both high and low speed operation. The majority of the costs associated with the equipment and training for the unit were minimal due to the utilization of forfeiture funds and a successful grant award. This has helped make the deployment of the unit a success.
