Update on Patrol Vehicle Replacement Policy

Laurens County Council received an update on a long-range Capitol plan this week regarding Sheriff’s Office Vehicles. In presenting the update Tuesday evening, County Administrator Jon Caime noted that Sheriff’s patrol vehicles should be replaced before they have reached usage of 200,000 miles. Camie noted that the original five-year plan leading up to 2023 indicated 62 vehicles would need to be replaced. He indicated the number is now greatly reduced.

Caime explained for WLBG that due to other local governments replacing vehicles before that mileage, Laurens County has been able to purchase some pre-used patrol vehicles still in good shape to reduce costs of vehicle purchases.
