One notable motorcycle that served as a police mainstay in the past (precisely in the 1970s) is the Honda CB750 Police Special, as reported by Bike Exif. Even today, this Honda model remains highly sought after by the public and has received numerous awards worldwide, gaining recognition in Asia, America, and Europe. It holds the distinction of being the first motorcycle included in the superbike category.

The police version of the Honda CB750 maintains a design quite similar to the standard model. However, several additional features were incorporated to support the police officers in their duties.

Honda equipped this motorcycle with protective iron bars both at the front and back to ensure the rider's safety in case of collisions. To assist officers in carrying out their tasks efficiently, a small box was added at the rear, providing storage space for items like gloves and a ticket book. Moreover, the box is equipped with a paper clip to facilitate writing tickets.

Here are several pictures of Honda CB750 Police Special features. (All pictures taken from: BikeExif)

Of course, no police vehicle is complete without a siren, and the Honda CB750 is no exception. What sets it apart is that its siren still operates using a manual system. The siren can be activated mechanically through a device located close to the rear tire.
In conclusion, the Honda CB750 has played a vital role in law enforcement and has garnered immense popularity, appreciation, and accolades globally. Its adaptability, safety features, and iconic design have solidified its position as a revered choice among police motorcycles.

Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of two-wheeled monster and stay alive with the true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops..... *** [EKA [03012016] | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | BIKE EXIF | DIGITALPIZZA ]

A unique Czechoslovak's police motorcyle called Nanuk

For some reason since we seeing its shape in the virtual sphere some time ago, We were very interested to know more about this classic and unique motorcycle from the Czech Republic. The motorcycle in question named Jawa 350 Type 354 'Nanuk'.
Jawa 350 Type 354 'Nanuk' as the SNB's transportation authority in the 1960s. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2Nc8u6o)
The motorcycle made by Jawa (or Jawa Týnec nad Sázavou), a well-known motorcycle manufacturer from the Czech Republic since an engineer named František Janeček bought the Wanderer motorcycle division and got the license to produce Wanderer 500 OHV under the brand of Jawa in 1929.

Meanwhile, Wanderer itself is a motorcycle division from a German manufacturer named Winklhofer & Jaenicke which was bought by Janiček. So the name of the Prague-based manufacturer is taken by concatenating the first letters of JAneček and WAnderer.

Back to Jawa Nanuk, and why this unique two-wheeled vehicle is called 'Nanuk' (means 'popsicle') due to indeed its looks from front fascia resembles the popsicle. The unique-shaped motorcycle began to be produced by Jawa in the early 1960s (1961-1964) and was built based on the well-known Jawa 350 type 354.
Jawa 350 Type 354 'Nanuk' built based on the well-known Jawa 350 motorcycle model. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2YMttC4)
It was a motorcycle designed for the SNB's transportation authority at the time, by considering the complexity of services on motorbikes. For the reason, this motorcycle is given a combination of white and blue, as the SNB vehicle color differentiation (SNB: the Sbor Národní Bezpečnosti, or National Security Corps or the Czechoslovakia national police from 1945 to 1991 when the Czech Republic still merged into one country with neighboring Slovakia under the Czechoslovak's socialist government).

Besides coming up with a distinctive NSB color as mentioned earlier, it turns out some units of this motorcycle are also given a combination of white and red. As quoted from Idnes.cz, the motorcycles (estimated 8-10 units) with this color combination was used for the NSB unit that was guarding the palace where the leader of the Soviet Union Nikita Khrushchev stayed while visited the country in August 1964.
The radio communication equipment attached inside the Jawa 350 Type 354 'Nanuk' side casing. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2Naodma)
Furthermore, the physical uniqueness of the Nanuk Jawa motorbike is largely formed by its large-size plexiglass fairings that cover both sides to half the body. These fairings fully protect the rider's feet from the wind.
Jawa 350 Type 354 'Nanuk' uses a 344 cc 2-stroke, 2-cylinder engine capable of producing power of 18 hp at 5,000 rpm. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2YcwCMw)
While on the front there is a round headlight that looks like a torpedo protruding out from behind the windshield. At a glance reminds us of the headlight of the Čezeta 501 or 502 scooters made by other Czech manufacturers. While on the back, there is also a large side casing that makes it possible to install a radio.

To support the Java 350 type 354 "Nanuk" performance, so the manufacturer installed a 344 cc 2-stroke, 2-cylinder engine capable of producing power of 18 hp at 5,000 rpm. The power is capable of making the 352 kg weighted motorcycle running up to a top speed of 130 kph with fuel consumption of 4.21 liters/100 km. Then the tank capacity is capable of storing gasoline as much as 13 liters.

It is unknown how many Nanuk has been produced by the Czech manufacturer? Now for sure, the remaining motorcycles have become a rare item that is the most sought after by the world's motorcycle collectors.

The first CHiP's motorcycle prototype

A motorcycle that has a high-capable power as an operational vehicle for law enforcement on the highway has become a necessity. This is what might have thought by law enforcers incorporated in the California Highway Patrol (CHiP) unit in the early 1940s. 

So then they tried to make a motorcycle prototype for this purpose and then send it to the motorcycle maker as an appropriate sample.

Well, LeGrand Jordan is one of the first California Highway Patrol officers, and in 1947 he developed a motorcycle prototype that was named the Jordan and was used as a motorcycle for pursuing the traffic violator vehicles on the highways.

Jordan made the motorcycle as a sample and then offered to the various motorcycle factories to be made, but none of them were interested to produce it because of the design of such a complex.

So the Jordan Twin Crank Four prototype sits in pristine and unique glory, one of 20 classics in the Otis Chandler Motorcycle Gallery of the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.

BMW won the contract to supply 100 unit EVs for LAPD

Unlike the Dubai police that has a full fleet of supercars, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), actually purchased 100 units of the BMW i3's fleet of non-emergency law enforcement. BMW has won a bid to supply the Los Angeles Police Department with electric vehicles after months of field testing that pitted the German automaker against competitors like Tesla.

Eric Garcetti, Mayor of Los Angeles, said he always thought of making the earth greener. By purchasing of BMW i3 shows how local government can lead it happen. "Our sustainability plan pushed LA to accelerate the adoption of environmentally friendly practices and technologies, which also saves money and resources," he said.

As reported by Fortune, the LAPD’s electric car deal is supposed to help Los Angeles meet its environmental goals as outlined in its sustainability plan. It calls for 80% of city’s fleet of light-duty vehicles to be electric by 2025.

As with the official non-emergency fleet, BMW i3 is not used to eradicate crime. The electric car will be part of the police initiative in community outreach campaign. Unlike the standard version, the BMW i3 is equipped with the devices that allows the LAPD to track their fleet in real-time. BMW said it will contribute to enhancing the dissemination and utilization of the i3.
As quoted of The Verge, to deploy a fleet of EVs, you need a way to charge them. LAPD is working with EV charger management company Greenlots to make that happen, installing 100 Level 2 chargers and four DC Fast Charge stations, which can charge a depleted i3 to 80 percent in half an hour or less. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | THE VERGE | FORTUNE | ELECTREK]
