Fla. Agencies Buy Diverse Vehicles for Unmarked Fleet

August 10, 2012  | 

Two Florida law enforcement agencies are purchasing Toyota Prius, Ford Fusion, Hyundai Elantra, and other models of unmarked vehicles to diversify their fleets and blend in among criminals.

The Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) Police Department will replace 247 of its aging unmarked vehicles over the next two years, and will have a fleet that looks "like a Walmart parking lot," Capt. Eric Brogna told WPTV.

The Boca Raton Police Department purchased four Priuses in 2005, and has expanded the types of vehicles so officers can "blend into everyday living," said Assistant Chief Edgar Morley.
