New Police Vehicle Zips Around Town
An electric golf cart is the newest addition to the police department vehicle fleet.
The downtown foot patrol officer is now able to move about and respond to calls for service more quickly. Also, the small quiet electric car creates less of an impact on traffic when the officer initiates or is dispatched to some activity.
