Folsom hosts motorcycle police skills competition

Motorcycle cops will display their road-handling skills at the Folsom Police Department's annual Police Motor Skills Challenge on Saturday, Oct. 27, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Palladio and Broadstone parkways in Folsom.

Motorcycle law enforcement officers from California and Nevada will compete against each other in a variety of riding challenges. The event is free, but spectators are encouraged to bring non-perishable canned food items as donations for Folsom's Twin Lakes Food Bank.

Volunteers from the police department and Folsom Lake College's Administration of Justice Club will also be on hand to provide free catalytic converter etching for trucks and SUVs. Catalytic converters are commonly stolen from vehicles, and etching them with identifying information can help police trace the stolen parts.

For more information, contact Folsom police at 916-355-7234.
