Milwaukee Police Department Celebrating 100 Years Of Service On A Harley-Davidson

This week Milwaukee Sergeant Mike Edwards took his mounted police department to the Harley-Davidson Museum where it was received by Willie G. and Bill Davidson to celebrate a century of collaboration on 2 wheels.

I don’t know if the Milwaukee PD has the longest collaboration with Harley-Davidson, but what I know is that the first Harley-Davidson police motorcycle was delivered to the Detroit Police Department in 1908.  Police and military organizations have a very long relation with the Milwaukee brand and realized the advantages of using Harley-Davidson motorcycles, a high resale value being one big advantage for all PD’s. The company states that during the last 10 years, Harley-Davidson police sales have more than doubled. Today, just as in the late 1920s, more than 3,400 police departments ride Harley-Davidson motorcycles in the U.S. alone.  Harley-Davidson Police motorcycles are also used in 45 countries.

    Milwaukee has only used Harleys for the entire stretch, some other cities have switched and tried others, etc. (Not saying Detroit isn’t longer-running, I have no idea.)

    That’s the great even for Harley, really. They can make a big promotion connected with that. Maybe the cops will help them to get out of crisis.
