HPD Issues New Patrol Vehicles
 

Huntsville, Alabama (August 12, 2011) On Monday, August 15, 2011, the Huntsville Police Department will issue the first of our recently purchased patrol vehicles to begin replacing its aging fleet.  The vehicles will be issued at 9:00 a.m. at the Special Operations Division located at 707 Fiber Street.

In May of this year, Mayor Tommy Battle along with City Council Members approved allocating $650,000 for the purchase and equipping of 28 additional vehicles. These vehicles will replace older, higher mileage units.  This is the most recent addition to the fleet since 2008.

Our Department would like to thank Mayor Battle and the City Council Members for their support and commitment to public safety.
