The ATV is a CanAm 800 R, equipped with fully functional lights and sirens. The ATV Unit was established in 2000 by Chief Ralph Dunn
Since inception, the ATV Unit has made numerous arrests, seized contraband, found missing persons (including juveniles) and responded to hundreds of calls for service. Officers serving on the ATV Unit have specialized training prior to operating the vehicle.
