Ulster Sheriff Asks for More Cars

January 30, 2008

KINGSTON, N.Y. – The Ulster County Sheriff’s Department is asking the legislature for seven new vehicles for their fleet this year to replace older cruisers and two Department of Corrections vans, according to www.midhudsonnews.com.

Six marked cars and one unmarked car currently in fleet all have more than 120,000 miles on them; at least one has more than 140,000 miles. It would cost too much to repair those vehicles.

A replacement SUV and transportation van for corrections are also requested. Both of those current vehicles also have been in commission past normal operating mileages, sheriff’s officials said.

The total cost of the seven cruisers amounts to roughly $185,000; equipment from the old cars will be installed on the new ones to save the county taxpayer’s money. The cost of the two Corrections vans equals roughly $35,000.

All decommissioned vehicles are given back to the county and sold at auctions.
