Fort Worth police get dirt bikes to patrol Trinity River Trails
Fort Worth Police are using a new fleet of dirt bikes to expand their patrol capabilities. Mayor Betsy Price and Fort Worth Police Chief Joel Fitzgerald helped unveil on Monday the new off-road motorcycles, which were donated to the department by the Tarrant Regional Water District. Fort Worth Police say they are lighter and more maneuverable than traditional police motorcycles. They are street legal and can handle urban environments, but the department said they will primarily be used to patrol the Trinity River Trails, an 80-mile network of trails that spans the city and is used by thousands of people every week, including hikers, bikers and horseback riders.
