Clayton County utilizes more than 700 vehicles in support of public safety operations, including first responder vehicles. As the age (6+ years) and mileage (100,000+) of our first responder vehicles increased, so did annual repair costs. Public safety concerns increased as our fleet aged.
Joint funding was approved to use SPLOST and capital funds to replace two hundred twenty-seven aging public safety vehicles. Priority was given based on vehicle age and mileage. Of the vehicles slated for replacement across the Police Department, Sheriff's Office, and Fire/EMS Department, 210 are funded by SPLOST funding.
