Setcom Corporation, an industry leader in communications systems and accessories for public safety vehicles, including police motorcycles and fire apparatus, has updated its police motorcycle training events calendar for 2008. Setcom now has the most complete list of police motorcycle training events online.
Setcom has created a calendar of 2008 police motorcycle training and skills competitions in an effort to keep its customers informed about the numerous police motorcycle training events that occur throughout the year. As an active supporter of police motorcycle training events, Setcom has representatives who attend many of the events listed on the calendar. Setcom Vice President Jon Syverson attends numerous police motorcycle training and skills competitions throughout the year on behalf of Setcom.
Police motorcycle training and skills competitions, or “rodeos” as they are also called, are one of the best places where police motorcycle officers can practice their motorcycle handling skills. In addition, motor officers can compete with other officers in a variety of training exercises at the police motorcycle rodeos. Training courses consist of somewhat simple exercises to more complicated maneuvers which help officers practice and improve their overall motorcycle skills.
In an effort to assist its customers in keeping their motorcycle handling skills up to date, Setcom encourages its customers to participate in these training events. Many of the training events listed occur throughout the country. By providing its customers with this calendar, Setcom hopes that motor officers will be able to find a local event that they can participate in.
Motor officer Mick Olson of the South Milwaukee Police Department says, "I appreciate Setcom putting this page together. The training related information they share easily allows me to know when and where events are happening. It's by far the most comprehensive on the Web.”
With over 25 events listed, Setcom has the most comprehensive list of police motorcycle training events on the Web. In addition to the event listings, Setcom also publishes pictures and detailed results of the rodeos.
Setcom President Jim Roberts says, “Motorcycle training events are extremely important in giving motor officers an opportunity to improve their skills. Training is one of the best ways for our customers to stay safe. I think this calendar does a great job of telling officers when and where these events take place.”
Setcom Vice President Jon Syverson is currently writing about his personal experiences at the police motorcycle rodeos on his blog Syverson Says. Syverson Says provides a more personal view of these events, in addition to other items of interest like places to visit in the area and information on different motorcycle models.
