Patrolling communities on 12 hour shift intervals, police vehicles rack up lots of miles. Sheriff Champagne purchases a dozen new police units a year, and retires older units with high maintenance costs.
The 13 Dodge Chargers were purchased at the statewide bid price of $20,900 each. The bid award is a change from the traditional Ford Crown Victoria that had consistantly been the low bidder.
The new police cars will be patrolling the streets of the parish once all the electronic equipment has been installed.
