In his report, Gagne also outlined expenses for the department: on August 21, the department ordered two new police cars, both Dodge Cruisers. The department will deck the cars with all-new accessories: new cage assemblies, consoles, light bars and the mobile data terminals used by officers to find information quickly on the road.
"The older stuff can't be transferred," said Gagne. "Most of that stuff was getting very old anyways, and we were taking it in and out of cars for several years. It was getting old and tired. As we get new cars, we'll be able to transfer [this equipment] in and out again."
Gagne says the department tries to time the purchase of mobile data terminals to coincide with new cars.
"New car, new computer, that's a good rotation to be on," he said.
