HEARING REQUIRED:  No Hearing Required

 

SUMMARY:

                                          

Pursuant to City Ordinance Title II, Sec 2-3-2, “Disposal of surplus tangible personal property”, the Pensacola Police Department has determined that the following four police equipped vehicles (2006 Ford Crown Victoria marked unit patrol vehicles:  SO9006, S31906, S35406 and S82906) 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.  

 

All future police officers, who will attend the police academy as recruits, as well as officers already serving the community, who attend law enforcement trainings at the George Stone Technical Center, will benefit from the use of these police vehicles in teaching scenarios.  The George Stone Technical Center serves as the Region 1, State of Florida Criminal Justice Training Center, and is therefore the school that provides the training for most of the area local law enforcement agencies.  As a result, the donation of the vehicles would also greatly benefit the Pensacola Police Department and the City of Pensacola community.
