The Marana Police Department was awarded 1st place by COPSWEST for “Best Police Motorcycle Design.” The motorcycle’s design was selected over entries from law enforcement agencies across the western region. The Marana Police Department’s Victory Motorcycles are the first matte finish police motorcycles in the United States. In addition, the vehicles includes a front & rear moving radar, shotgun or rifle rack in the saddlebag, heavy duty crash bars, extra-large skid plate, agency badges etched onto the covers on both sides of the engine, an adjustable wind screen and a garage door opener built into the motor. These motorcycles were built and purchased in Tucson, AZ by Victory Police Motorcycles. MPD currently has two of these motorcycles in service and an additional two motorcycles are on order. The award was presented at the 2014 COPSWEST Training & Expo in Long Beach, California. The COPSWEST Training and Expo provides public safety officials a venue for new product discovery, education, fulfillment of POST training requirements, networking and skill development.
