    In Denderleeuw, Belgium, the local police department will now see its staff going on patrol on new Trenergy e-bikes, after a batch were recently delivered.

    Needing to replace its existing fleet, the Denderleeuw Police Department put out a public tender with a view to purchasing more modern models. Those entering the tender had to ensure specific requirements were met, including the e-bikes’ colour (white), weight, carrier weight, service, price and battery.

    The chosen dealer was Fietsen ‘t Sjepapke in Denderleeuw., who felt that the Trenergy Performance 2.3 with belt drive and Enviolo hub best met all the requirements. The dealer also offers a service whereby the bicycles can be repaired on-site at the police department, for greater convenience.

    Pascal Chow has responsibility for Trenergy’s Belgian market, and was in charge of handing over the first bicycles to the Police Department. He said, “We are very happy with this collaboration and see it as a first step for a long-term relationship. The bicycles are regular models that are available to everyone. We didn’t make any special adjustments, like bulletproof tires or anything like that.”

    After a short test drive by one of the police officers, the first impression was that the Trenergy e-bikes also ride smoothly without power-assisted support, which had not been the case with previous models.

  2. Copenhagen police e-scooters hailed a success

    Although many cities regard electric scooters as somewhat of a nuisance, police in Copenhagen are becoming quite accustomed to the two-wheeled vehicles.

    Initially celebrated by cities and deemed a solution for sustainability and clean, urban mobility, e-scooters have progressively become less-favoured. Problems caused by irresponsible parking and perception of the vehicles a danger to other road users and pedestrians alike have been particularly significant. However, police in Denmark’s capital have welcomed e-scooters into their expanding fleet, and celebrate the local benefits.

    The western suburbs of Høje Gladsaxe and Ishøj have been targeted by the police units and the adoption has already been hailed a success. The e-scooters have enabled mobility where it might otherwise not have been possible by way of historical four wheeled transportation. This has allowed the police to give a better service to the community.

    What’s more, the new transportation vehicles have created a closer bond with the public. Inspector Allan Nyring from Copenhagen Vestegns Police commented, “Police on scooters elicit more smiles and pleasant comments than the bicycle, and the officers feel that they get closer to the citizens than in a patrol car.”

    Being more welcoming and more accessible are regular interests for many police forces, and the adoption of e-scooters certainly aids in this pursuit.
