S.C. Agency Wants Officers To Pay To Fill Up
May 25, 2011
If City Manager Nolan Wiggins gets his way, Abbeville, S.C., Police officers who live outside the city limits will be required to pay for fuel used outside the city limits.
The city gives officers take-home vehicles and reimburses fuel costs for driving from home to work and back home. City councilmembers have voiced concerns about the $70-$80 cost to fill up one of the 18-19 police vehicles for some officers.

I think if they are going to charge the officer for the fuel he should charge them an acceptable rate for his "on-call" status (reason for take home cars) and see who comes out better.

I agree, they should get paid for their while "on-call" and then they should get from the time they leave their house to the time they arrive back home. I am sure then he might reconsider.
