  • patrol cars repossessed by bank

    What would you think if you came into work and found out that your patrol cars were repossessed by the bank? It happened in Illinois.

    That's not good.
    It could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others.

              IT'S BROKEN AWAY FROM THE LEASHES!




              Next time they have a bank robbery, or burglary at their place, they'll have a much slower response time.

                  I really liked how one commissioner said we'll just get the ISP(state police) to help like they have a bunch of extra guys to handle all those calls.

                      I never heard of a government getting a loan to buy patrol cars, although I have heard of leases. According to the article, "County Chairman Mike Caldwell received the letter from the bank on Friday and after a conversation with the bank, the five vehicles were turned over on Tuesday," so it was no surprise.

                        If I am not mistaken, many cities do that and back the loans with bonds of some type. Either way this situation is crappy for the citizens of that community, it is great that ISP is stepping up and helping out, but that can not be a perminate fix, les they abandon other areas of the state.

                            Imagine this, your at a traffic stop issuing a citaton and WHAM! Here comes Big Petey in a tow truck towing away your squad car.

                            Officer: What are you doing sir!?

                            Repo man: I'm towing his patrol car

                            Officer: How I'm gonna get home?

                            Violator: I can give you a ride!

                            Just kidding, however, that's no good. Hopefully that department will get some budgeting issues sorted out. I would hate to see more deputies get laid off and more cars repossesed, especially in this economy. Maybe the county could work out some issues with the banks. They sould have repoed some of the counties other vehicles instead of law enforcement vehicles. Did they atleast get their stuff out????

                              I read in the bottom article that a sheriffs office in florida was going to send them some patrol cars paid for. That is EXTREMELY nice of them. thats something that they don't need to do at ALL. especially when your multiple states away and every state has its own finacial problems... Way to go St Lucie!!!!
