Tucson Police Need $21M to Replace Aging Fleet

December 28, 2016

Tucson City Council (Ariz.) is considering whether to put a half-cent sales tax increase on the ballot next May after a police vehicle leaked so much diesel fuel the Fire Department had to clean it up. The Tucson Police department estimates that around 63% of its patrol vehicles are beyond their recommended service life and up to 80% are due for replacement, reports Tucson.com.

If approved, the tax would generate an estimated $50 million annually, with $30 million of the revenue going into replacing equipment for the Police and Fire departments. The department has identified that an estimated $21.2 million is needed to replace its 260-vehicle fleet.
