Motorcyle Traffic Unit
The Satellite Beach Police Department is dedicated to traffic safety and enforcement programs to help keep our city residents and visitors as safe as possible when traveling through our city. Our police department has been recognized state wide for outstanding traffic safety efforts and has received numerous grants for traffic safety equipment, such as the speed display board seen around the city.
The Motorcycle Unit of the Satellite Beach Police Department was started in 2003. Due to their size and maunverability, these bikes negotiate heavy traffic better than a patrol car. This unit is responsible for all aspects of traffic enforcement to include special patrols in problem areas, investigating all traffic crashes, and traffic homicides. Another benefit is their reduced fuel consumption. They regularly participate in dignitary/funeral escorts in Brevard, Volusia, and Orange County alongwith other motor units.
We are currently have two 2010 Harley-Davidson Police FLHR Road Kings. Here are the specs for these bikes:
1,690 cc Twin Cam 103 engine
9.6:1 compression ratio
Helical-cut 5th gear
Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI)
6-speed Cruise Drive transmission
The Satellite Beach Police Departments Motorcycle Traffic Unit is staffed by two officers certified in Police Motorcycle operations: Sergeant Eric Fuller and Corporal Rob Mench. Sergeant Fuller can be reached at (321) 773-4400 ext. 148 or via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
TRAFFIC COMPLAINT PROCEDURES
The department has implemented the “Selective Traffic Enforcement Program” (S.T.E.P.) as a means of addressing traffic related complaints. If you have a specific complaint about ongoing traffic safety issue such as cars speeding, running red lights, reckless driving, etc. Please call 321-773-4400 to initiate a S.T.E.P. A motorcycle officer will be assigned to the problem area for three days and take appropriate enforcement action, with spot checks to continue after the three-day S.T.E.P. is completed. The complainant will be contacted and informed of the results of the program in their area.
