More than 1,000 municipalities, airports, military bases, private security firms, emergency response teams, 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.
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, its 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.
Police and Sheriff
Police officers focused on community policing have called the Segway® Patroller an invaluable tool. Officers who ride Patrollers agree that the most significant advantages to riding them are that they’re:
Visible and help project a stronger police presence
Able to efficiently patrol larger areas 3x faster than on foot and with less fatigue
Capable of traveling indoors, outdoors and over varied and uneven terrain
Empowered to easily facilitate positive interaction with the communities they serve
Able to proactively gather intelligence from citizens and ultimately prevent crime
In a crisis situation every second counts, which is exactly why the emergency medical service (EMS) industry embraces the Segway® Patroller. EMS professionals riding the unit can:
Travel up to 12.5 mph, arrive at emergencies quickly, without fatigue and with the composure needed to address the situation
Accommodate Segway's universal cargo plate and cargo bag options and conveniently carry the life saving medical equipment needed to treat patients until an ambulance arrives
Maneuver through crowds and tight spaces and even through doorways and into elevators
Whether you're a local fire department or event medicine, you'll find Segway PTs to be an invaluable transportation tool for all of your EMS needs.
Corporate and contract security firms are increasingly faced with the challenge of optimizing the efficiency and productivity of their security team in order to meet their client's demanding requirements. Security officers that utilize Segway® Patrollers appreciate its ability to:
Improve response time by traveling up to 12.5 mph
Trek indoors, outdoors, into elevators, up ramps and through doorways
Turn with a true zero radius, pivot within its own shoulder width footprint and maneuver in very tight spaces, including between parked cars
Traverse various terrain quickly and enable them to patrol vast areas to manage large crowds
