The Palmetto Police Motor Skills Competition is a way to showcase the skills of law enforcement motorcycle riders or motor officers. They come to the competition from different states and locally and are put to the test through a series of performance-under-pressure events. 

It takes a great deal of practice to be able to handle the weight and size of a motorcycle. The basic idea behind police motorcycle training is to make the motorcycle work to its maximum potential. A simple philosophy of motor officers is, if you hit or rub a cone in training, you have just struck a pedestrian.

Several events help determine the overall best riders. These riders are ranked in a final overall category. The best overall rider earns the title of Mr. Rodeo. The best team consisting of four members earns the title of Best Overall Team.
