Community Resource Deputy in Goleta gets new e-bike

GOLETA, Calif. – Goleta's Community Resource Deputy Ehren Rauch has a new pair of wheels, an almost $4000 e-bike purchased by the City of Goleta.

The new motor-assisted bicycle with a range of 50 miles and a top speed of almost 30 miles per hour will bear CRD Rauch during some patrols.

“I am very excited to be out in the community on an e-bike. This allows me to provide outreach and enforcement in places that are typically not patrolled by a deputy in a car.” explained CRD Rauch.

The e-bike is expected to assist on patrols at Ellwood Bluffs, Lake Los Carneros, railroad tracks, city parks, Old Town, and larger events such as the Lemon Festival or parades.

“I have already had several positive interactions with the public on the e-bike and look forward to having many more,” said CRD Rauch.
