This is a great honor and we know you are proud to earn this distinction.
Many of you may have seen the new Venice Police Department's vehicle in downtown Venice, but do you know that the new Segway X2 Patroller was purchased not by city funding but through the fundraising efforts of the Venice Farmers Market?!?
Over the last year, Linda and Dave Wilson of the Venice Farmer's Market and the community of Venice have raised over $13,000 to purchase the Segway for our Venice Police to use on the streets and beaches of Venice, Florida. There was even a little extra to purchase three Taser guns. The Segway was delivered on Wednesday, June 19, 2013 at 10:00 am where 3 police officers received training on the use of the Segway. In total, there are 8 trained officers to use the Segway.
