The units come fully outfitted with GPD logos, sirens and lights and cost $33,000 each.

Chief of Police Fred Bordallo says the units will be used in the Highway Patrol Section for traffic enforcement. DPW director Joanne Brown said, "Today is one of numerous days that we are able through federal funding programs that we are able to provide additional equipment and resources to our fellow law enforcement officers."
