Ann Arbor Police Department Brings Back Motorcycles After 30 Years, November 1981


Ann Arbor Police Department Brings Back Motorcycles After 30 Years, November 1981
Caption: 
Back In Style - No, the Ann Arbor police didn't steal the idea from The CHIPS. Actually, city streets used to be patrolled by motorcycles prior to the 1950s, but four-wheeled squad cars forced them into retirement. Now the two-wheelers are coming back after 30 years because, officials say, they use less gasoline, are cheaper and can maneuver more efficiently through traffic congestion. Patrolmen Harry Jinkerson (left) and Thomas Kemp try out their new machines flanked by (from left, standing), Capt. Kenneth Klinge, Mayor Louis D. Belcher, City Administrator Terry V. Sprenkel, Patrolman Rick Cornell and Police Chief William J. Corbett.

New Look - Sgt. Robert Seifert of the Ann Arbor Police Department sits in one of seven new city police cars painted black with a white top. The old cars were brown and white. Major Howard Zeck said the department is buying five more cars that will be painted all white for greater visibility. And those five cars will be compacts that are a bit less costly to purchase and much cheaper to maintain than the standard-sized police car, Zeck said.

Meter Maids And Their Motorcycles - City Police Chief Walter E. Krasny stands between the two types of motorcycles now being manned by Police Department meter maids. Mrs. Tommie Stewart, left, sits on a three-wheel cycle, similar to those ridden by male traffic officers and Mrs. Elaine Allen is on a small, two-wheel machine which Krasny says is more maneuverable in downtown traffic. The chief says if the small cycle proves practical, Mrs. Stewart will also be assigned to one. She is assigned to parking meter patrol on city streets, while Mrs. Allen checks the city's various parking lots and structures.

New Police Equipment: This new jeep, recently acquired by the Ann Arbor Police Department, is being used to service parking meters throughout the city.
