LAPD Goes Green with Bulls e-Bike Fleet
Earlier this year, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) announced the addition of 20 Bulls Sentinel e-bikes with pedal assist to its bicycle unit. Expanding to four divisions, LAPD says e-bikes could “radically change how we police in an urban-type environment.” Other police departments using e-bikes include Green Bay, Wis.; Tucson, Ariz.; and London, England. Bulls Bikes USA claims to have the most extensive e-bike product line in the U.S. The Sentinel model was designed over a nine-month process between Bulls and the LAPD to meet the needs of the department. It is capable of reaching speeds of up to 28mph across varying terrains and comes equipped with a Bosch Performance Speed motor and 180x200mm Magura hydraulic rotor-disc brakes.
