Sheriff Cocchi Donates Trikke Defenders to the Springfield Police Department

Springfield, Mass. — Springfield Police Superintendent Cheryl Clapprood thanks Hampden County Sheriff Nick Cocchi for the donation of Trikke Defender’s for the Springfield Police Department.  The personal electric vehicle can travel on a variety of surfaces and can get up to speeds over 30 mph.

“I’d like to thank Sheriff Cocchi for coming to Springfield Police Department Headquarters and delivering these Trikee Defenders.  We had a nice discussion about how best to deploy these new patrol vehicles and some other initiatives we will be partnering on this spring and summer,”  said Springfield Police Superintendent Cheryl Clapprood.

Police Superintendent Clapprood will initially utilize the Trikke Defender’s in large public gatherings and events such as Star Spangled Springfield and concerts as well as in our parks, with the potential of other uses in the future.
