Big Lake Police receive ATV from Yamaha

Big Lake Police Dept.
Chief Joel D. Scharf

The Big Lake Police Department has become the recent recipient of the use of a 2014 Yamaha Viking.  This all-terrain vehicle was acquired as part of Yamaha Corporation’s Law – Loan Program.  This program provides the use of a new side by side all-terrain vehicle free of cost to selected law enforcement agencies.  This ATV will be used for accessing areas in the City of Big Lake inaccessible by patrol car, search and rescue, community events, and mutual aid incidents. The retail value of this vehicle is $13,500.  This project was facilitated and made successful by efforts of Moon Motorsports in Monticello.
