Saint George Police Department did a Questions & Answers live stream today. Here is some information I was able to gather and summarize.

Equipment:
  • Every Motorcycle is equipped with an LTi TruSpeed S LIDAR unit
  • Motorcycles ARE NOT equipped with RADAR, mounted or handheld
  • BMW Motorcycles are used and are white in color
  • Emergency lighting is Red & Blue
  • Officer uniforms are short sleeve sky blue colored button up shirts with white colored wrap around full visored helmets

The Motorcycle Units are Prioritizing the Following Types of Traffic Violations:
  • Distracted Driving (handling a cell phone; emphasized as their #1 concern)
  • Failure to Move Over / Keep Right law
  • Following Too Closely (F.T.C.)
    • State law requires a 2 second time gap when following
    • Just a Reminder that this is enforceable with the LTI TruSpeed S's F.T.C. feature
Other Info:
  • Motorcycles are not used during persistent rain or snow weather
  • They do enforce on Interstate 15 through their city limits
  • They have at least 3 motorcycles, possibly more
  • The Motorcycle Units are "not as concerned about" Burned Out Tail Lights

Bikes are great for school zones and pedestrian law enforcement. I suppose with all that’s going on, that’s not top of mind, but I bet they use them for that.

If they needed funds for a Failure to Move Over task force, I’d be very tempted to donate.
