COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson and Texas A&M’s Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) are teaming up to provide a new motorcycle training program for police officers, according to a joint announcement Tuesday.

The program is designed for officers in motorcycle units to receive basic training all the way through advanced riding skills. The program will also offer a police motorcycle instructor course.

“As a former law enforcement administrator, I know training is key to managing risk,” said Dr. John M. Ray, PhD, Director of the TEEX Institute for Law Enforcement and Protective Services Excellence, in a statement.

Ray describes the training as, “A mixture of classroom and on-track training. TEEX provides the curriculum and delivery of the course, while Harley-Davidson provides the motorcycles and servicing on-site.”

“We are proud to partner with TEEX to create a comprehensive training program that allows peace officers to focus completely on improving their skills,” said John Dedeo, GM Field Sales for Harley-Davidson, in a statement.

All training options and locations are available to certified peace officers from any state by registering through open enrollment on the TEEX website here.
