We got 'em too. A friend of mine is a Sargent in the U.S. Park Police Horse Mounted Unit here in Washington, DC.

Do all Western Sheriffs need training wheels on their Segways?

Oh, yeah, I forgot about D.C. No excuse having lived there once. I think the 3-wheelers are because they carry several pieces of equipment on the floor...at least this deputy did.
