Akron's police department is getting some new wheels, courtesy of Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James.

He's making a donation to the force of 10 bicycles used last month in his annual "King for Kids" bike-a-thon fund-raiser.

The Cannondale brand bikes have James' name emblazoned on them. They'll be outfitted with disc brakes, shocks, lights and sirens so they can be used by police for patrolling.

Akron Police Sgt. Mike Lugenbeal says putting officers on bikes gets them in closer contact with the public.

This year's King for Kids bike-a-thon on June 21 raised money for the Akron Area YMCA, the Akron Urban League and the LeBron James Family Foundation.
