The Sangamon County sheriff’s department has two new sets of wheels.
The department has received a donation of two fully-equipped patrol bikes from Green Toyota. The bicycles are suitable for travel both on pavement and off-road, and are equipped with lights, sirens and built-in equipment storage.
Undersheriff Jack Campbell says they will be useful for patrol during special large events like the county fair, and could also be used for patrols on area bike paths. The two bicycles are valued at $8,000.
