There's a current trend among San Mateo Police Department motorcycles.
Cops' bikes are going electric.
Leading the charge towards alternative energy-fueled policing is San Mateo, which bought a Zero electric motorcycle, according to USA Today.
The company boasted of the sale -- and of the benefits for police, as the bikes are lighter in addition to being emission-free, the newspaper reported.
The electric bike also lacks "intrusive odors" as well as disturbing noise, a police official said.
