The Jackson County Sheriff’s Department is adding a couple of motorcycles to its fleet.

The County Legislature on Monday approved buying eight motorcycles from Blue Springs Harley-Davidson. The department has eight currently. It’s trading in six of them, so it will have 10 when the $65,320 deal is complete.

Sheriff Mike Sharp said the motorcycles are not assigned to specific deputies but are valuable in a variety of ways, such as at special events.
