Raleigh has been building quality bicycles for over 100 years.

Raleigh has been producing specially-equipped police and security bicycles since 1987 wheh Raleigh and the Seattle Police Department teamed up to develop the first specific police bicycle model.

A lot has changed in bicycle technology since 1987, but Raleigh police bicycles are still designed with day-to-day law enforcement use in mind. Raleigh consults law enforcement agencies across the country throughout the entire development process. The result for 1998 is a lighter weight bicycle with increased durability, reliability and comfort.

Thousands of security and law-enforcement agencies across the country have made Raleigh police bicycles their top choice. When it's time to organize your bicycle patrol, choose Raleigh.
