GEM/Zero Electric Police Motorcycle

The GEM/Zero Electric Police Motorcycle was designed and manufactured by Beaudry Police to act as a green alternative to patrol motorcycles. With a 196-mile estimated range and 116 ft-pounds of torque, it's made to keep up with its gas-powered brothers. The company saw the potential for converting this distinctive two-wheeled platform into a law enforcement tool whether for daily patrol or stealth operations. The GEM/Zero is mission capable along with almost zero cost per mile, according to the company.

850 Impact D-Collar Boat

Brunswick's Impact D features a hybrid air/foam-filled collar mounted to a solid fiberglass gunnel. Instead of a fully circular tube, the Impact D-collar allows for more space on deck and added maneuverability and versatility for the crew. The D-collar gives customers the best characteristics of a standard fiberglass hull with the benefits of an RHIB. Law enforcement finds this design especially suited to tactical maneuvers, where boarding another craft may be necessary, according to the company.
