New police cars added to Sylvester PD

SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) - The Sylvester Police Department adds to its fleet.

The department just got a 2014 Chevy Impala to be used in criminal investigations. A Ford Interceptor SUV will serve as a K-9 unit in the narcotics division. Officers say the cars will help them to their jobs more efficiently.

"He loves it. The car we had had over 200 thousand miles and the A-C will go out every now and then," said Sgt. Kevin Griffith, Narcotics.

"The makeup of the car will allow us to carry more equipment more evidence to process our crime scene and conduct follow up investigations," said Sgt. J.C. Shiver.

The money to buy the new cars was approved by the Sylvester City Council.

The department will get one more new car this week.
