The Pierre Police Department utilizes a motorcycle as one of its methods for patrolling during the warmer months of the year. Prior to patrolling on a motorcycle, each officer receives approximately 40 hours of training in the operation of a police motorcycle by an officer certified to instruct the motorcycle course. Sergeant Jason Jones serves as the Motorcycle Course Instructor.
Officers Bret Sether and Richard Bauman were the latest officers to receive training from Sgt. Jones in the operation of a Police Motorcycle. The slideshow is some of the highlights of the officers motorcycle training.
