The History of the Mansfield Police Department Motorcycle Unit
By: Lt. Douglas Noblet
The Mansfield Police Department started a ceremonial motor unit this year. Officer Mike Haines and Terry Butler completed the basic operator course held in Cleveland, Ohio. They are the first motor officers since the department disbanded the last unit in the 1960s. We have five motor officers awaiting training. The first Motor Officer is dated back to 1913. Currently the department is riding 2005 and 2006 Harley-Davidson FLHTs.
