Tufts PD goes green with electric motorcycle

NORTH GRAFTON, Mass. (April 23, 2015)—The Tufts University Police Department has added an electric motorcycle to its fleet of vehicles, demonstrating that being green and business-savvy go hand-in-hand.

The electrically-powered two-wheeler, housed on the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine campus in North Grafton, will save the department in fuel and maintenance costs, according to Sgt. Glenn McCune, who wrote a proposal to obtain the motorcycle.
