Police News Dominates Government Fleet in 2017

December 27, 2017

News items about police vehicles dominated traffic on in 2017. Police news is always a popular topic, but it claimed nine of the top 10 spots on Government Fleet's most popular news items for the year.

Government Fleet readers continue to read up on the latest OEM news, including the now-discontinued Chevrolet Caprice and Ford's newest police models — the F-150 Police Responder and Special Service Vehicles.

Another hot topic this year was ghost cars — or patrol vehicles fitted with low-profile graphics. Two of the most popular news items and one of the most popular articles covers the topic.
