Bibb County Sheriff's Office Receives New Dodge Vehicles
The Bibb County Sheriff's Office gets some new wheels.
The office received 17 new Dodge vehicles last week. Fourteen of the new vehicles were purchased by the county and three by the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety through the Highway Enforcement of Aggressive Traffic grant (H.E.A.T grant). Some of the Dodge Chargers will be replacing the old Crown Victoria’s that have reached 150,000 miles or more. The three H.E.A.T chargers will replace the current ones that have reached the same mileage limit. However, this is the first time the sheriff's office will have patrol cars be Dodge Chargers.
"Everyone's very excited to get a new charger,” Fleet Manager, Chip Wagner said. “We've had the three H.E.A.T chargers since '07. We've been very successful with them. The guys are excited. Everyone's going to get a chance to drive one now.”
The office will be selling the old Crown Victoria’s at an auction next month. The new Dodge’s will be on the road in three months after the graphics and lights are put on.
