Cops cruise at Camp Jordan, learn motorcycle skills

Posted: Updated:

EAST RIDGE, TN (WRCB) -- The Chattanooga Police Department, along with the Hamilton County Sheriff's Department, is in the process of conducting a two week basic Police Motorcycle Operators Course for area law enforcement officers. 

This is a grueling two week course that teaches police officers the skills required to perform basic patrol duties on the motorcycle and is considered one of the most difficult classes offered in law enforcement, as it is physically demanding and mentally exhausting. 

Police motorcycles are one of the most effective means of traffic enforcement in law enforcement but the skills required to safely conduct enforcement activities on a motorcycle are above and beyond what the average motorcycle rider is capable of, and because of the required skills, police motorcycle officers are considered among the best motorcycle riders around.
 
Officers from a variety of agencies, both local and from as far away as Pennsylvania, are taking the course, which is considered on the best in the nation.
