Lee Co. Sheriff's Office gets new cars

December 12, 2007

Lee County-  Christmas came early for the Lee County Sheriff's office.

They'll get eight new cruisers over the next four weeks. The first two arrived this week. The new 2008 cruisers are paid for with Special Local Option Sales Tax funds. The new cars are equipped with state of the art dash board cameras and new LED light bars that use about a 1/4 of the power. Some of the Sheriff's office cars had become unreliable more than 330,000 miles on them.

"The reliability is a key thing, because if a person has an emergency and we need to get there the last thing we need is for a car to break down on the way," said Lee County Chief Deputy Dennis Parker.

The new cars will be put into service as they arrive. The older cars will be put on Georgia's government web site to be sold to the highest bidder.
