EVALUATION OF THE MICHIGAN STATE POLICE MOTORCYCLE PILOT PROJECT: ANALYSIS OF POLICE ACTIVITY AND ATTITUDES

A pilot project designed to examine the utility of including motorcycle patrols at the Metro Detroit State Police Post (Post 29) was conducted June 1, 1993 through August 31, 1993. The purpose of the project was to collect data allowing an effective evaluation of the enforcement and emergency response capabilities of police motorcycles in an urban freeway setting. This report details results of analyses of officer activity and attitudes regarding the Metro Detroit motorcycle pilot project. Officer activities were gathered using the standard Michigan Department of State Police, Uniform Services Division Daily Report (form UD-2) and Quarterly Activity Report (form UD-193). Officer attitudes regarding the program were obtained using face-to-face interviews with involved personnel.
