The Orlando Police Motorcycle Unit was established in 1921 for traffic enforcement and accident investigations. The unit currently has 35 Harley Davidson FLHP-I motorcycles. As part of the department's Community Oriented Policing orientation, the primary enforcement emphasis is on neighborhood traffic complaints. Officers assigned to the unit are also responsible for traffic control at the more than 400 special events occurring in the city each year.
This unit along with the Orange County Sheriff's Department's Motor Unit work together as a team to provide escort services for visiting dignitaries such as the President and Vice President of the United States. They are the only team that trains with the United States Secret Service.
