So why would the general public care? Well, for starters, this shows officers that the public is supportive of their work and a morale boost goes a long way for officers who have, according to the police chief, needed more officers for some time.
But beyond that, it would also save Jonesboro tax payers a lot of money. The vehicle is a brand new Chevy Tahoe PPV, a specialized police vehicle made by GM which starts at over $42,000. It has a 5.3L V8 engine, features like Lane Keep Assist and Lane Departure Warning, 2WD, and an auxiliary battery for powering police equipment. There’s a rear camera for safety when backing up, six total airbags for safety in the event of a wreck, and much, much more. It is a decked out vehicle. See the full specs here.
But that doesn’t even include the third-party upgrades the vehicle will come with. A police pursuit package and a K9 package will both make the value over $50,000 when completed.
This is the second custom fitted Chevy Tahoe Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. has given away.
VOTE HERE once each day and let’s help JPD put that beautiful SUV on Jonesboro city streets.
