The History of Motorcycle Law Enforcement started in October 2008 as a web site to preserve the History and help educate the public in Motorcycle Safety and Awareness. In 2010 AmeriGas donated a Tent and Sign. With this tent and sign Police Motor Units.com went on to preserve the history and go to police motorcycle rodeos. 2011 Started bringing some photos history and patches in the tent. 2015 got the Police Motor Units.com enclosed motorcycle trailer. The trailer a short time later also became the Police Motor Units.com Mini Mobile Museum. In June of 2015 a couple of sponsors donated the Police Motor Units.com Tent and Wall for the tent. The tent with the trailer/mini museum was debuted at the Palmetto Police Motorcycle Safety Seminar in Charleston, SC. Reads Uniforms of Charleston, SC donated uniforms to The Police Motor Units.com Motorcycle Rodeo Team. After the Charleston Police Motorcycle Seminar some upgrades and remodeling had to be done to the trailer/mini museum. New walls and flooring had to added. Along with a redesigning of the mini museum. Made 3 Blue Line coin holder for the top trim of the trailer and added more photos. We have now added a wall mounted poster display case. This display was the Patch Wall, Badges and Motor Unit Shirts and the Motor 6 Project. We are about 99% done with the Museum.

Law Enforcement agencies submit there history with photos past and present as well as photos from Motor Officers and family members.
