The City of Cleveland, Ohio, has taken delivery of 65 new police vehicles totaling more than $2.8 million. This increases the fleet from 341 vehicles to 406 vehicles. Funding came from a $100 million bond approved by the City Council in 2015, which includes $20 million designated for fleet improvement.

The new vehicles are also part of Mayor Frank Jackson’s Healthy Neighborhoods Initiative, a series of legislation and programs aimed at improving city neighborhoods.

The $100 million dollar bond has four key components including roads and bridges, city emergency response fleet, city facilities, and new neighborhood projects.

“The $20 million designated for the fleet improvement includes vehicles for Public Utilities, Public Works, and Safety," Jackson said. "What you see here today is that money was spent to provide a more responsive police force and improve safety for the citizens of Cleveland.”

The new vehicles include radios and a technical package. The purchases include 55 sedans and 10 SUVs. The police vehicle computer systems technical package cost $8,800 per vehicle. These vehicles are American made, according to the city.
