New Police Utility Vehicles

01/28/2016

Many of you know there has been considerable discussion in the recent Hamilton County Commission regarding the HCSO's goal in slowly transitioning from Impala's to Police Utility Vehicles, particularly the Ford Police Interceptor Vehicle.

There are several reasons for this desired transition including the fact that the police model Impala's are not available anymore and due to the space limitations in vehicles verses utility-style automobiles.

The video link below will take you to a very good video created in house by Jimi Hammond and features Sgt. Spencer Daniels detailing the HCSO’s reasoning for wanting to transition from patrol cars to patrol utility vehicles.
