Improve Campus Safety While Going Green with the #1 Supplier of E-Bikes to Campus law enforcement
Power Bikes fill the extensive divide between the typical squad car and the patrol officer walking the beat with a host of advantages. Officer safety is always a priority. For example, an officer can respond to a call at a distance of several miles, utilizing the electric motor, via pedal assist or throttle without being fatigued. Response times can be greatly improved with the mobility and power of an ebike, especially on a campus. Several universities have depoyed RECON Police Power Bikes as part of their active shooter response program. No vehicle can consistently compare in response time across campus. The ebike can navigate effortlessly through traffic congestion, in off-road conditions as well as over curbs and stairs in an urban environment. The ebike gives the officer significant advantages over a traditional bicycle.
You can do more with less on a RECON. Patrol a larger area on a more frequent basis while improving response time. All on a lower cost GREEN EV.

GOING GREEN WITH A PURPOSE
Los Angeles Pierce College is a public institution in Woodland Hills, California. It's Campus is located in the Los Angeles metropolitan area with a total enrollment of 22,000. The school is situated on a sprawling 426 acre campus.
Los Angeles Pierce College sought a mobile solution to enhance campus security in an efficient, cost effective, and environmentally sound manner. Located on a congested urban campus with limited entry/exit points, the administration wanted to improve response times, patrol efficiency and mobility. Pierce College chose the electric bike to responsibly address the rigorous campus safety, and security requirements for their faculty and students.
Real-world performance testing was done on campus to both test the capabilities of the ebikes and to quantatatively determine response times on campus.
- RESPONSE TIME - Several time trials were done comparing response time of typical squad car to the response time of a the RECON Power Bike. On average, the bike improved response times by 15-20% depending on traffic patterns at the College. This improved response time could be extremely important in Critical situations.
- TERRAIN TESTING - The Power Bikes also performed extremely well on the terrain testing. Trials demonstrated there were no issues on hilly terrain or off-road conditions. Moreover, the bikes excelled powering over curbs and maneuvering stairs.
- SUMMARY - In today's complex security environment, the electric bike offers law enforcement another tool to improve safety, efficiency and response time. All of this with an attractive cost and a green footprint. The maintenance is relatively minimal and there is no fossil fuel consumption. Whether in a metropolitan area, campus, park or greenway, the RECON ebike offers a host of advantages and should be considered as a viable alternative to traditional policing vehicles. Finally, RECON is introducing an LPR (License Plate Recognition) platform for the bike. This platform will be helpful for parking and investigations.
Testimonial from Texas Christian University Police Department
"I just wanted to drop you a quick email about our experience in purchasing and training on the Recon (Power) bikes we recently received. Let me start out with the fact that we had never considered e-bikes for our campus. We had Trek police bikes with little buy-in from our officers."
"Our training day was yesterday. I can’t say enough positive things about the experience. Dave was exceptional in his knowledge and patience. We were taught about the features, maintenance and safety protocols we should consider in using these bikes. He trained our department trainers who in turn will develop a course for the multitude of officers who now wish to ride. For us this is an enormous win. From a safety standpoint we now have officers closer to our community. They have already started to interact more readily than our officers in patrol vehicles."
"The Chief of Police was so impressed with his training session that two more Recon bikes were purchased on the spot. We now have a fleet of six conventional bikes and six Recon e-bikes, although that may change with the new fiscal year as more officers are taught to ride the Recons."
"I don’t often write accolades about our purchasing experiences but this will be the exception. Dave should be commended for his attentiveness, knowledge and professionality. I look forward to doing more business with them in the future."
- Commander Steve E. TCU Police Department
