More than 1,000 municipalities, airports, military bases, private security firms, emergency response brigades, and other public and private safety organizations can't be wrong. They've all stepped up to the Segway Personal Transporter (PT) for patrolling. They're connecting more with the communities they serve. They're keeping people safer. They're responding to emergencies more quickly. They're preventing crime. And they're doing so all while creating fewer emissions, taking up less space, and a lot less hassle than other transportation options.
Around the world, officers rely on Segway PTs to help get them where they need to go. They press a button on a wireless InfoKey™ controller, step up, and they are ready to patrol for a full shift before needing a recharge. They're able to do more rounds in less time, get to the scene more quickly, and deter crime all along the way.
For the multitude of private organizations using Segway PTs to patrol and respond to emergencies, the Segway PT is a force multiplier. They can put a guard out on a Segway PT and the public feels like there's more of a security presence. It's part psychological, it's part fact. Someone patrolling atop a Segway PT can see above the crowds and be seen. The rider is noticed and that translates into fewer car break-ins and lives saved because emergency equipment was able to be brought to a patient in need.
The Segway Patroller i2 and x2 models were designed with the direct input of trusted law enforcement and security professionals. Their recommendations informed high visibility, integrated lighting systems, durable components, surfaces for insignia, stowage area, and other enhancements. From the wristband for the InfoKey controller to the improved bumper, the Segway Patroller was built with the patrolling officer in mind.
