The primary duty of our motorcycle team is to assist patrol and other sections in the Sheriff's Office as needed. The primary concentration for our team is on community-oriented programs and being an assist unit for other uniformed officers. Our team is heavily involved in interagency departmental activities such as Bike Safe NC, Booze it & Lose it (DWI), Click it or Ticket, and Operation Stop Arm checkpoint campaigns.
Our Motorcycle Team conducts escorts involving governmental or dignitary personnel, including escorting the President on several occasions. Escorts are also provided by our team for funerals and other special events which are approved by the Sheriff. We regularly escort events such as the annual Victory Junction Ride, Special Olympics Torch Run, Camp Carefree Charity Ride, as well as others. We regularly participate in local parades such as, Summerfield's Founders Day Parade, High Point's Veterans Day Parade, Jamestown's 4th of July parade. We participate in Christmas Parades in Jamestown, High Point, Pleasant Garden, and Stokesdale
Our team has ten fully dressed Police equipped Harley Davidsons and one Buell. Our team consists of six active members with two reserve members. Our team members are dedicated to furthering the Sheriff's Office connectivity with the schools and communities we serve. We participate in community-based events such as National Night Out and other school and neighborhood based community outreach programs.
Team participation is on a voluntary basis and a large portion of their participation is during the weekend. The team members have a deep commitment to bringing the communities we live and work in together through their interactions during these events.
The Sheriff's Office Motorcycle Team members and local allied agencies train monthly and have an annual in-service certification course.
