The Chopper, built by leading chopper builder Big Bear Choppers (, is the first of its kind and was built to honor officers who have fallen in the line of duty. There will be a series of press conferences as the Chopper moves from Los Angeles to Sacramento during the State's Peace Officers Memorial week.

Holly Roseberry, President of Hybrid Technologies stated, "We are very proud to be working with the men and women of the California Highway Patrol and the California Association of Highway Patrolmen on this project.

Hybrid Technologies was honored by the CHP in a ceremony on April 6th, 2005. The CHP received both State and Congressional awards of merit for their efforts with this project. Hybrid Technologies also received a special award from the California Highway Patrol.

The Lithium technology used in the Chopper was developed in Van Nuys, Calif., at Hybrid's development facility.
