The Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office will be getting 25 new vehicles.

The Tarrant County Commissioners Court approved spending $977,720 to purchase the vehicles during its regular session Nov 22.

The purchase included Chevrolet Tahoes and Ford Explorers purchased from Holiday Chevrolet in Whitesboro and Sam Pack Ford in Carrollton, respectively.

Each Tahoe will cost $37,686, and each Explorer will cost $41,243. Every vehicle will be outfitted with police pursuit vehicle packages.

The new vehicles will replace 21 current vehicles and add four new vehicles to the Tarrant County law enforcement fleet, according to Public Information Officer Bill Hanna.

The current fleet includes vehicles that range in age from 2-11 years old. The vehicles being replaced will be sold at auction.

“Replacement criteria is based on a combination of factors: years of service, type of service provided, maintenance records and mileage,” Hanna said.

The vehicle purchases were approved by the commissioners as part of the fiscal year 2022-23 budget and is standard practice once the budget is approved.
