GPD gets 18 new police cars

Posted: May 10, 2018 4:28 PM Updated:

You can expect to see more police cars on the streets. Eighteen Dodge Chargers have been added to the fleet, most of which were rolled out on the Adelup Breezeway earlier this week.

Chief of Police JI Cruz said, "These 18 vehicles will be dispersed amongst the four precincts to be able to deal with the calls for service out there. I just want it to be known that this is in line with our community oriented policing strategy. As we reach out to the community and meet the needs of the community, the community is asking for more visibility. They're asking for more patrol officers, they're asking for more patrol cars out there."

Fifteen of the cars were purchased through FY2017 General Fund while three were purchased with the 2017 Tourist Attraction Fund.
