Sacramento Sheriff Police MotorcycleThe Sacramento Bee reports that the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department won an award for the "Best Police Motorcycle Design".

The department has 19 BMW sport touring motorcycles outfitting with special lights and computers designed to locate bad guys and access records...
The sport-touring type motorcycles, which can reach top speeds of 130 mph, have been outfitted with alley lights, a series of three LED lights on each side of the bike that the deputy can turn on to look in yards or vehicles. While alley lights are used on patrol cars, this is the first time they've been used on law enforcement motorcycles, Thiessen said.

Laptop computers are mounted in the rear radio trunk of the motorcycles, complete with air cards, to allow deputies access to information about individuals' probation, parole and warrant status from the department's databases while out in the field.
With all all high-tech bells and whistles for apprehending criminals, I hope they do more with these bikes than just hide behind bushes and watch for speeders.
