The chief should be wearing a helmet, especially around "the kids who start following you". I hope they're not following your example. But kudos for saving your tax payers money! I hope there are other officials following that example!

I guess this is typical, but at the beginning of this year Erie Police gave up all their bike patrols. The height of gas prices is now.

Nice that Chief Johnston is trying to save the taxpayers money. He'd be doing a better deed and setting a good example by wearing a helmet and protecting himself from a potential serious brain injury. Not a real good example coming from the Chief of Police!

Awesome!! You go Chief Johnston, Not only are you saving taxpayers money, ut you are getting out there in the community that pays your salary! We love to see you around town and the rest of the police department needs to do the same! As for all of you who need to make comments on the helmet issue, shame on you! That is what is wrong with our world someone always has to find a negative in something good.
