Cleveland police officers have been driving aging cruisers that often have more than 100,000 miles on the odometer and lack basic working safety features, the Cleveland Police Patrolman's Association president told NewsChannel 5.
About a fourth of the city's police vehicles (119 of 418) have more than 100,000 miles on them, the media outlet found. Steve Loomis, the voice of patrol officers, said many cars don't have working airbags or anti-lock brakes. Loomis called the situation dangerous.
The city's 2015-2016 fiscal-year budget includes funding for 30 new vehicles.
