Warmer Weather Means Cops Are Back On Hogs

Posted: Updated:
KALISPELL -

It's a sign of warm weather when Kalispell police officers bust out their motorcycles.

Kalispell cops have to take a two week training course in Spokane before they can be put on motorcycle duty.

For the most part, they'll stick around high traffic, problem areas looking for speeding and other violations.

They'll only patrol as long as there's daylight.

With all the tourists, officer Jordan Venezio says it's a busy time on two wheels.

"It's just something different, something more fun than the usual patrol-- get out there on a sunshiny day and ride a motorcycle. It's pretty interesting," said Venezio.

Venezio says it's easier to get around town on a motorcycle and catch law breakers.

Even though they're not as loud and flashy as a patrol car, they can still pull you over.
