HEARING REQUIRED:  No Hearing Required

 

SUMMARY:

                                          

Pursuant to the Code of the City of Pensacola Title II, Sec 2-3-2, “Disposal of surplus tangible personal property”, the Pensacola Police Department has determined that the following two police equipped vehicles (2007 & 2008 Ford Crown Victoria marked unit patrol vehicles:  S32507 and S03508) have no substantial value to the Police Department or the City.  

 

The above listed vehicles are unsuitable and no longer of use to the Police Department, due to their high mileage, age, condition and unreliability.  Because these vehicles are equipped with standard police equipment, they are not suitable for use by another city department and have no substantial value to the Police Department or the City.  To render the vehicles suitable for use, other than law enforcement related, the Police Department would have to expend money to remove the police markings and the aged police equipment located in and on the vehicles. 

 

USMC Racing is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which provides functional therapy to veterans, active military members and first responders who suffer from service related PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injuries.  They use retired vehicles, such as our patrol cars, as race cars to provide functional therapy to those in need all over the southeastern United States.  This provides an opportunity for those who are suffering to be around those who think alike and experience counseling, in a non-traditional setting, to help them on their road to recovery. The donation of these vehicles would greatly benefit this organization, as well as the Pensacola Police Department and the City of Pensacola, by affording a greater opportunity to provide therapy to members of our community.
