SRPD fleet vehicles

The Police Department’s fleet of approximately 75 vehicles includes patrol cars, traffic safety vehicles (cars/motorcycles/radar trailers), Investigation cars, Police Service Technician vehicles and Emergency Command units.

The ultimate goal and responsibility of Fleet Services is to provide our officers with safe and reliable vehicles to respond to emergencies and perform law enforcement duties. Fleet Services Coordinator O.J. Plotner, with over 30 years of fleet logistics experience, ensures the vehicles are inspected, repaired and maintained according to a rigorous, preventive maintenance schedule designed around their severe duty use. He is also responsible for the purchase and emergency “up-fit” of the vehicles, license and titling, accident repairs, budgeting, special vehicle projects, driver assignments, used vehicle disposal and any other aspects of operating our emergency fleet. Due to multiple work shifts and multiple drivers, some vehicles travel up to 700 miles per week. The severe duty use of these vehicles requires a rigorous, preventive maintenance schedule.

The Dodge Charger police package cars have now replaced all but a handful of remaining Ford Crown Victoria patrol cars. There are six new Chevrolet Tahoe police package vehicles on order to replace the remaining few. These vehicles will be placed in Sergeant Command Unit and K9 Unit positions. Their extra carrying capacity will be a great improvement for holding all the equipment required for these positions. Automotive size, technology and capability can change from one model year to the next, but for the foreseeable future, the Dodge Charger and Chevy Tahoe will be the main stay of our Patrol fleet.
