The Hanson Police Department was the fortunate recipient of this 1999 Harley Davidson Police Motorcycle in July of 1999. Hanson business owner Bob Sullivan, of Sullivan Bros. Inc. 121 Franklin Street Hanson, MA, donated the motorcycle to the Hanson Police Department. The motorcycle was ordered and equipped through the efforts of two Hanson Officers, Sergeant Eugene K. Andrews andSergeant Michael D. Casey.
The Motorcycle unit currently consists of six trained officers: Lieutenant Joseph P. Yakavonis, Sergeant Michael D. Casey, Officer Jeffrey A. Bailey, Officer Douglas S. Smith Jr. and Officer Marc F. Vigneau.
The motorcycle is used primarily as a traffic enforcement tool. The hours of operation for the motorcycle unit are 5am-12am (weather permitting). The motorcycle is also used in parades, at funeral processions or in instances of close quarter events, large crowds etc.
