Albany - Dougherty County police get creative thanks to a tight budget. When EMS surplused an old ambulance, DCP turned it into a Emergency Response Vehicle.

DCP added a desk, computer, TV, VCR, radios, and other equipment they sometimes need on crime scenes and disaster sites but can't fit into the police cars. "They can do interviews in an out of the weather and private environment. There are work tables and printers if we need to do any paper work in the field," said Chief Don Cheek.

DCP put less than $3,000 into the vehicle.
