The Henry County, Ga., Police Department received approval to purchase 30 Dodge Chargers for $700,000 to replace vehicles with more than 150,000 miles on them, the Henry Herald reported.

The PD’s deputy chief explained that the PD now has 54 vehicles over the mileage limit, and this number will increase to 78 next year and 105 in two years. He explained that since it would cost $4.5 million to outfit 105 police cars, it would be more beneficial to manage replacements in increments.
