T3 Motion, Inc., a Costa Mesa-based producer of clean technology vehicles, has provided a number of its signature T3 Series Electric Stand-Up Vehicles (ESV) to various French National Police departments and municipalities for trials during a nationwide campaign to reduce crime. The trials allowed the French government to evaluate the efficiency of the T3 ESVs and their usefulness to the anti-crime campaign. During the initial trial period in two cities the French government observed 12.7 percent and 8 percent drops in crime.
The T3 ESV, the company’s flagship product, is an electric law enforcement patrol vehicle that seeks to incorporate low operating costs with increased patrol capabilities. The Ouest-France newspaper reported Loire-Atlantique Director of Public Safety Philippe Cussac as saying, “We are very pleased with these vehicles, which adapt well in urban areas and facilitate communication with citizens.” Good results were also reported in Paris, Marseille and Perpignan leading the French government to extend length of the trial to at least two months.
Ouest-France reported that T3 ESVs were used during the Nantes campaign to increase the number of law enforcement patrols from 96 in June to 179 in July and 201 in August. T3 ESVs were deployed in Nantes for security initiatives in the city center to prevent shoplifting, respond to noise complaints and investigate reports of drug possession. The deployment resulted in 23 arrests for drug possession in the summer season alone.
France joins numerous other governments in finding the T3 Series ESV useful in increasing visibility to the public and effective management and deployment o police and security personnel. The T3 Series ESV is now deployed in more than 30 countries worldwide across all six major continents.
