Police Department Goes "Green"
The Armstrong Police Department has gone "Green" with the addition of two, three-wheeled cruisers in the Parking Services Division. These bicycles are used by the Parking Services patrollers to enforce the parking regulations and distribute correspondence between the Police Department and other departments across campus. The bicyles are red and have flags attached to them for safety. They are environmentally friendly and the department is doing its part to keep Armstrong "Green". The spokes for the bicycles are still thredded by hand at Schwinn Bicycle Company. The maintenance and care of these bicycles are more economical and the department is not using fossil fuels to power them. The bicycles have a more stable base and are harder to roll over than other forms of transportation.
