Currie Technologies Supplies Largest "Battery" of Police Bikes in History
LA-based Electric Bike Manufacturer Partners with Chicago Utility Company to Supply 130 Electric Police Bicycles to Over 100 Chicago Area Police Departments

VAN NUYS, CA. -- Currie Technologies, a leader in electric bicycle technology received the largest single order of police bikes in the history of the industry. Dr. Malcolm Currie, the company's co-founder, president and CEO made the announcement today.

The order was received from Chicago's ComEd, electric energy provider for Northern Illinois, a subsidiary of Unicom Corporation (NYSE:UCM), which is supporting local law enforcement and environmental responsibility by donating over 130 electric bicycles to over 100 communities in the Chicago and Northwestern Illinois areas of ComEd's service territory.

Currie's "Law Enforcement Special" - which can be pedaled normally until officers activate the battery propulsion system - is a modified 27 speed mountain bike, powered by Currie's patented Electro-Drive, direct drive propulsion system, that utilizes a 24-Volt brushless DC motor, for rapid acceleration with enough torque to help climb any hill encountered. Special police accessories include a NiteRider® Law Enforcement Lighting System with pursuit lights, siren, and an Inertia Design Rack Storage Bag for police equipment. The Fuji Police Special features an oversized lightweight aluminum alloy frame and is equipped with heavy-duty components. The system is extremely rugged and works in all weather conditions.

"Bicycles allow officers to safely navigate crowded areas and arrive at a crime scene quicker," added Richard Mayer, Executive Vice President and Co-Founder. "Our Police bikes are designed to reduce officer fatigue and lengthen patrol duration, while also eliminating the nighttime noise and pollution associated with standard police vehicles."
