The Saint Paul Police Professional Development Institute (PDI) is sponsoring an 80-hour course on POLICE MOTORCYCLE OPERATOR.
This intensive program will develop the coordination, skill, and confidence necessary for the student to operate a police motorcycle safely and efficiently. The course will cover the following: machine nomenclature (Harley Davidson or Kawasaki), slow maneuvering, control braking, curve negotiation, defensive driving techniques, law enforcement techniques, and on/off road driving. Students will need to bring their department-owned motorcycle helmet, eye protection, gloves (not fingerless), and over the ankle boots. Upon successful completion, the students will be fully prepared for on-the-job training with their own department. A minimum of 3 students is needed for this class to proceed.
