Fremont Traffic Unit hosts Motor Training and Skills Competition

Friday June 1 and Saturday, June 2, the Fremont Police Department's Traffic Unit will host the first Motor Training and Skills Competition. Friday activities - 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. - will feature practice and training; Saturday - 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. - is reserved for competition. This event, open to the public, is an intense motorcycle skills competition that will be exciting for both competitors and spectators alike. We encourage everyone to come out and help support our team!

Forty-two Motor Officers from 15 law enforcement agencies will test their skills as they compete on their service bikes for trophies in both challenge and slow ride courses. The obstacles will challenge a Motor Officer's ability to maneuver around confined spaces and require skills learned through traffic enforcement. Patterns will include a time element to place a challenge on a Motor Officer's ability to maneuver in a safe and concise manner, similar to that of enforcement riding.

The event is free to the public. Food Truck Mofia will be on-site selling food beginning at noon each day.
