Snohomish Police plans to use UTV vehicle when need calls for it

The Snohomish Police Department will eventually be adding a four-wheeled UTV to its fleet, as well as a couple of electric bicycles.
The UTV could be used for situations to cover ground fast in places where a patrol car can’t reach. This can seat three and tow 2,500 pounds, manufacturer Polaris says.
Most recently, several officers received hands-on training from a law enforcement officer in the U.S. Forest Service.
The Police Department is working out all of the policies and legal logistics involved in using the UTV before it can be formally used, Snohomish Police Chief Rob Palmer said.
The Police Deparmtent might hold a public demonstration when it starts being used, Palmer said.
The city bought the Polaris XP 1000 police package model directly from the manufacturer for $34,907.75 around Thanksgiving. It arrived soon after and got decals added at the city shop.
