Ga. Sheriff and Iowa PD Purchase Caprice PPVs

July 08, 2011  | 

The Forsyth County (Ga.) Sheriff Department plans to replace its current fleet of 175 patrol vehicles with Chevrolet Caprice PPV patrol vehicles, according to a news release from General Motors. The sheriff's department tested a number of 2011-MY vehicles in May and made the decision to make the purchase after the test.

"With its emphasis on the ergonomically designed seats for officer comfort, and enhanced safety features, the Caprice is a vehicle that is made for police work," said Sheriff Ted Paxton. "We've had our vehicles for a month, and we're sold. This will be a worthwhile investment."

The Cedar Rapids, Iowa, is also purchasing Caprice PPVs for its police fleet. Dennis Hogan, fleet services manager in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, was involved in the decision-making process.

"We view the police vehicle as an extended office for our officers," Hogan said. "We chose the Caprice, because it delivers optimal officer operational space, trunk and storage space, and generally provides our officers the most-suitable operating environment."
