Obstacle course challenges Utah motorcycle squad candidates
The Salt Lake City Police Department on Friday began its annual motor school at the Utah State Fairpark for officers interested in assignment to the motorcycle squad.
The two-week school makes certain each candidate can operate a motorcycle under the different scenarios routinely encountered by motor officers, according to a press release.
Riders must prove their skill by successfully navigating a variety of obstacle courses, as well as pass a braking exam.
