If you see a couple U-M Department of Public Safety officers cruising around campus in Harley-Davidson’s, don’t be surprised: DPS announced their new “motor unit” two days before Hash Bash. In the University press release, DPS Capt. Joe Piersante comments, “They especially will be helpful when working with large crowds, such as football games and special events, as well as enhance our services when providing dignitary protection.” The motorcycles are being leased from Harley-Davidson for $350 for the first year, and DPS considers it an effective way to cut vehicle and fuel costs.
