State Patrol Retires Motorcycle Unit

State Patrol

ST. PAUL – The Minnesota State Patrol is disbanding its motorcycle patrol.

The unit was revived in 2007 with five troopers, after a nearly 60 year hiatus.  Between 1930 and 1949 as many as 80 motorcycles were in use by the State Patrol.

Chief Kevin Daly says increased costs for training, a concern for trooper safety, and a lack of trooper volunteers are the reasons.

The five 2008 Harley Davidson motorcycles will be auctioned off.
