Forrest Co. Deputies will receive new motorcycles


FORREST COUNTY, Miss. - Forrest County Board of Supervisors approved the Forrest County Sheriff's Department Monday to receive brand new motorcycles.

Investigator, Nick Calico said, "Over time, they have improved the capabilities, and engine, and safety for the motorcycles, and that's why we're upgrading."

The department will purchase three 2017 Harley Davidson Electrogylde motorcycles with seized money.

"The main thing is the safety of the motor officers. One of the most dangerous aspects of law enforcement is riding motorcycles. And they're extremely excited to get better quality motorcycles with the safety aspect of them," said Calico.

Deputies should receive their new Harley Davidson's in the next few months.
