LAFD’s bike medic team regularly patrols LAX, as well as Dodgers and USC football games, when those venues are open to the public. The team aims to fill the gap between those on foot patrol and medics in ambulances.

“These e-bikes are a great asset to our current fleet of bikes and will enhance our capabilities to better serve the community,” Shawn Lenski, a spokesman for the LAFD, said in a statement.
