INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev.— The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office recently purchased six Recon E-Bikes which will be utilized in the Incline Village area beginning in the Spring of 2024.
Of the six, two will be assigned to the Incline High School Resource Deputies and four will be assigned to Deputies working Incline Village patrol and special events.
“Implementing E-Bikes in a patrol capacity is the first by any law enforcement agency in Northern Nevada,” said Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam. “The six bikes will help with traffic and code enforcement around Incline Village and allow deputies to patrol areas in Incline which have been previously difficult to reach, including beaches, areas around Sand Harbor and trailheads.”
