IACP 2012 video interview: Harley Davidson

Harley Davidson motorcycles are iconic, powerful, and timeless — kind of like American police officers!


Editor’s Note:

Editor's Note: Many thanks to our friends at TASER International for equipping me with the TASER AXON Flex body-worn video camera and Evidence.com digital evidence management solution for secure video storage and retrieval.

During IACP 2012 in San Diego, I visited with the folks from Harley Davidson to get a look not only at their “work” motors, but at the latest model in their line of “off- duty” tribute motorcycles.

Jim Polan spoke with me about the three unique motorcycles available for purchase by law enforcement officers only — special editions of the Road King, the Ultra Classic Electra Glide, and the Heritage Softail Classic — adorned with Thin Blue Line paint scheme and customizable medallions on the gas tank. 

Harley Davidson motorcycles are iconic, powerful, and timeless — kind of like American police officers!
