News About Town: If you haven't already, you'll soon see police zipping around town on motorcycles. The department just added a three motorcycle Motor Unit to the Patrol Division. The Chief expects the mobility and quick response capabilities of motorcycles to be a great benefit to the reduction in traffic accidents. Of the three, two are Harley Davidsons purchased from the Char-Meck Police Department and the electric unit was purchased with grant monies received from N.C. Clean Energy Technology Center. Let the CHIPs jokes begin!
