City discusses plans for new police car, ambulance

NORWICH Although the City of Norwich had anticipated being able to forego buying a new police car this year, unforeseen circumstances have made it likely that the city will need both a police car and an ambulance in 2008.

At the January Finance / Personnel Committee meeting, Police Chief Joseph Angelino told the committee that one police car had been taken out of service in 2007 due to an accident, and that it would need to be replaced. I had intended to skip the replacement of a police car this year, but last year one was involved in an accident and was totaled, Angelino explained.

The chief told the committee that while he had requested a member item grant, the money, if received, would probably not be available until 2009. Angelino suggested that the car be purchased prior to receiving the grant, since police cars are manufactured in limited quantities and available for only a portion of the year.
