HD Street 750 for Police Use?

Do you guys think a street 750 would be suitable for police use?
What HD's do police in north america currently use?

I think there was another video of a Harley police bike. So it has been done before. I can't see why not. I could never understand why police departments buy vehicles and bikes that are so nice. Sure it needs an engine that moves it, but does it need Harley styling? Couldn't that money be spent on something just as good but cheaper?

Starting to think it's not as heavy duty as it needed to be for that type of job.
Road kings are indeed far more suitable

If part of the point of getting police motorcycles is to be able to keep up with kids on fast bikes, the police would need something faster or they would just get left behind. Imagine the Street 750 chasing after someone on a high powered Ducati. No contest.

thats not the only point but it's also for easy of use and even for some cops that patrol highways.

Doesn't Motorolla make cell phones (or used to at least?) Do they make motorbikes too?

Any cop on a Harley would look like a bad ass, and intimidating the public is half of being a cop.
