The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has released its final report of its two-week evaluation of 2014 model-year law enforcement vehicles.

Government Fleet magazine attended the testing in November. Read our full report here. We also published a photo gallery and video from the testing.

The department evaluated 21 pursuit-rated vehicles including nine sedans, nine motorcycles, and three SUVs. The vehicles were tested in categories such as acceleration, dynamic handling, braking, and ergonomics.

The final report includes detailed driving notes from the two LASD and two Los Angeles Police Department drivers who tested the vehicles.
