I’ve been trying for the last couple months to figure out what LRPD motorcycle units are using. I stumbled across this picture today.

you can see the antenna next to the white teardrop trim piece, and also the counting unit mounted up by the handle bars.

That looks like a K band Decatur antenna.

Ugh. That was what I thought too. Looks like I’m gonna have to pay attention to K alerts in the city now 🤮

That guy in front not in regulation wear.
Can you refuse to pull over for someone in civies who may have stolen a police bike?
After our Canadian mass murder rampage that used a fake car and uniform indistinguishable from real, I would be worried by this motley crue.
Thanks for the antenae training, I have to ID our new K bands too.

The picture was taken to introduce new moto unit recruits who were going through training. All the officers wear uniforms.

As others have already said, definitely Decatur K band, probably a Genesis II. Genesis II has a stubbier K band antenna than Genesis I. Also, Genesis II can be directional in K band format

Welcome to my world friend. Genesis II K band is the most common gun I see ;)

I can tell you I know the LR police have had K band from at least December 2019.
Did you see this yourself? I have lived in and driven around Little Rock for 5 years and have never seen LRPD enforcing speed. I know most of the cruisers do not have radar and most of the beat cops are concerned about real crime.

My parent's neighbor is LRPD Moto. Next time I see his bike out I'll see what's on it.

Ahh. I know the Sheriffs have K band, but didn’t know LRPD till now. If you could send me a PM with more details that would be awesome.

K band is making a come back, MRCD & MRCT is just a low power K band. Hard to detect it. Detectors must be programed to look for it.
