Gwinnett County Gets $3M for New Emergency Vehicles

February 18, 2010

ATLANTA - Gwinnett County Commission recently passed a measure authorizing $3.1 million for new vehicles in emergency departments, according to The Atlanta-Journal Constitution.

The expenditure will go to the purchase of new vehicles for current officers and to accommodate expansion in the police department. Police will get 108 pursuit vehicles, and the Sheriff's Office will get eight, according to Michael Lindsey, county fleet service manager, reported the AJC. A fully equipped police vehicle costs about $25,000, he said.

As part of cost-cutting measures, Lindsey said the county has moved back the replacement cycle by a year. He said the county normally replaces 200 police or sheriff's pursuit vehicles. He also said there were no plans to replace any administrative vehicles this year, reported the AJC.

Gwinnett County's fleet currently totals approximately 2,700 vehicles, according to a fleet department source.
