S.C. County's Sheriff Adds 23 SUVs to Patrol Fleet

July 02, 2014

The Spartanburg County (S.C.) Sheriff's Office has added 23 Chevrolet Tahoe SUVs to its black-and-white patrol fleet as a more durable vehicle.

The pursuit-rated Tahoes replacing outgoing Ford Crown Vic sedans, and provide sheriff's deputies with more space to transport suspects and a more comfortable cab, Capt. Tim Metz told GoUpstate.com.

The agency began using non-pursuit Tahoe SUVs as K-9 units several years ago.
