AKWESASNE MOHAWK POLICE SERVICE LAUNCHING ELECTRIC POLICE FORCE VEHICLES
The Akwesasne Mohawk Police Service (AMPS) is informing the community that they are adding two electric vehicles to their fleet. The AMPS have been working with partners 7Gen and Cyberkar to equip the electric police vehicles. AMPS will be one of the first police forces in Ontario in Quebec, as well as the first Indigenous police force that will operate electric vehicles within their fleet.
An important effort to transition to electric vehicles was made to reduce emissions, and the AMPS hopes that other organizations will follow suit to make eco-friendly changes for the environment. Deputy Chief O’Brien states “We are excited to be working with 7Gen and Cyberkar to be adding our first electric vehicles to our fleet. Reducing our emissions starts with minor changes like this one.”
Note that AMPS’ funding for these vehicles is earmarked for equipment only and cannot be used or transferred to any other program in Mohawk Council. The Akwesasne Mohawk Police are anticipating launching their new e-vehicles in the fall of 2023.
