City of Elgin to Lease Police Cruisers & Motorcycles

February 07, 2013

The City of Elgin, S.C., is the most recent jurisdiction to join Sparta Commercial Services’ Municipal Lease Program for the acquisition of its essential equipment, particularly the updating of police vehicles.

According to Sparta, by choosing to pay for equipment over time, municipalities have greater flexibility as they decide on departmental allocations, an understandable preference in a time of tight budgets and fiscal constraints.

Harold Brown, Elgin's chief of police, said he was impressed with this "great financing alternative."

In addition to police cruisers and motorcycles, the Sparta Municipal Lease Program can accommodate many types of material required by most jurisdictions, including trucks and busses, fire and EMS vehicles, surveillance systems and ambulances, and even tactical vehicles.
