The Monroe Police Department (La.) added 32 new Chevrolet Tahoes to its fleet, enough for every officer to have his or her own vehicle and take it home. KNOE reports that this is expected to cut down on response times now that officers won’t have to stop by police headquarters to pick up a vehicle.

Originally, the agency planned to purchase the vehicles over time, but found it could save $50,000 by buying them all at once. The new vehicles carry a price tag of $1.2 million, reports myarklamiss.com.
