Monroe Police add new fleet to the streets

Local News

A new fleet is hitting the streets. 

The Monroe Police Department revealed 32 new SUVs Wednesday.

The vehicles are the newest addition to the department’s street team.

The original plan was to buy the vehicles over time, but Monroe Police Chief Quentin Holmes says the department was able to save $50,000 by buying the cars all at once.

Chief Holmes says new vehicles mean officers won’t have to share cars anymore, and that’s a big deal.

“This provides an opportunity, they just drive up and go to work and it gets us to the streets quicker and it’s a huge motivational to our guys, so they’re really excited for them,” says Chief Holmes.

The entire fleet cost $1.2 million.
