ALLENTOWN, Penn. — As Lehigh University officers sailed across the sidewalk on purring electric scooters, a man hung his head out the window of a passing pickup truck and pointed his finger: “Dude, check it out!” he hooted. “How cool is that?”

That’s exactly the reaction campus police are hoping the department’s new Segways and three-wheel scooters will evoke with students, staff and visitors. Officers debuted two new Segways and a T3 Motion scooter during the Dalai Lama’s visit in July and the vehicles will be used to patrol all areas of the campus.
