We’ll find out this summer.
Segway Inc. announced today that the NYPD has purchased ten Segway i2 Police Units to beef up patrol in City parks and reduce carbon emissions at the same time.
"We are honored to count the NYPD as users of our latest police technology," said Jim Norrod, chief executive officer for Segway Inc. "The i2 Police units will help the city save on fuel costs and enable patrol officers to provide a higher level of security in many of the city’s busiest areas."
Surely the NYPD rank and file will just looooove being on this thing. Why, they’re already having a lively discussion on the merits of the Segway at NYPD RANT.
