DAYTONA POLICE TO RIDE VICTORYS

Starting Oct. 1 the bike cops of the Daytona Beach Police Department that patrols Biketoberfest, Speed Week, the Daytona 500, Spring Break, and Daytona Bike Week will be riding on new Victory Police Motorcycles. Following a recommendation by Police Chief Michael Chitwood the Daytona Beach City Commission voted unanimously to switch to a fleet of 12 Commander I Victory Police Motorcycles, which are based on the Victory Cross Country.

“Every other year our agency ordered new motorcycles, and we were at the mercy of whatever new advances were made to the bike itself, which usually wasn’t much,” said highly decorated DBPD Traffic Unit Officer Jason Kilker. “By contrast, Victory Police Motorcycles provided a two-page checklist of law enforcement-only options that were available for our officers to select what suited them best. These options included, but were not limited to, full-size AR-15 rifle racks, heated grips, and a mind-blowing LED light package that no one can match.”

The Daytona Beach PD joins a growing number of law enforcement agencies across the United States and Canada have switched to Victory Police Motorcycles which is based in Tucson, Arizona. VPM acquires motorcycles from Victory then equips them with equipment specifically requested by those agencies. The bikes will feature the department’s striking custom paint scheme and famous logo. Volusia Motorsports in New Smyrna Beach will provide service and regular maintenance for the fleet.
