The City of Burbank has added two electric motorcycles to its police fleet, as it extends the adoption of Zero Motorcycles outside of the northern California area.

Burbank purchased two 2014 Zero DSPs earlier this month from Hollywood Electrics, a local dealer. The motorcycles will be used for daily patrol on Burbank streets, as well as supporting search and patrol functions in off-road areas.

Patrol models arrive equipped with pursuit emergency lighting and sirens, safety components, and functional storage options to carry gear, patrol items, and emergency medical equipment.

"The integration of the dual purpose electric motorcycles will provide the Burbank Police Department with the ability to expand our existing enforcement efforts, which we believe will improve the level of service we provide to our community," said Lt. Jay Hawver of the agency's Traffic Bureau. "We continuously look for opportunities to introduce new technology when practical and applicable."
