The Cambridge Police Department has received a 2017 Yamaha Viking EPS SE side-by-side all-terrain vehicle free of charge, due to a generous donation from Larson’s Cycle Inc. and the Yamaha Law-Loan Program.
The only expense to the city will be some graphics and some warning lights. Mike Larson from Larson’s Cycle was instrumental in setting up this program for the Cambridge Police Department.
“This very generous donation from Larson Cycle will more effectively help the Cambridge Police Department patrol our multiple parks and trail systems. Due to the uniqueness of this vehicle, officers will be highly visible and more approachable to the public while patrolling our parks and trails,” said Cambridge Police Chief Timothy Dwyer.
The Cambridge Police Department serves over 15 parks, totaling approximately 450 acres of land. The Yamaha Viking side-by-side from Larson’s Cycle will allow law enforcement to actively patrol those parks and respond quickly to medical and other related calls, which can happen in locations that are not accessible by traditional patrol vehicles. Aside from patrolling those parks, the Yamaha side-by-side will also be used routinely by officers and reserves during our many outdoor community events.
“We appreciate the partnerships that we have with local businesses like Larson Cycle,” Dwyer said.
