Waynesboro Police Department gets refurbished cars

WAYNESBORO, GA (WFXG) -

When Waynesboro Police Chief Augustus Palmer took office 3 months ago, he was looking for ways to save money.

Instead of paying for new police vehicles, he found an alternate way; through a company called Emergency Vehicle Restoration.

"I became acquainted with this particular company about a year and a half ago at my previous agency," Palmer said. "I was impressed in what they offered in the quality of the restoration."

Representatives from EVR presented the car to the Waynesboro Police department, Thursday.

"I'm ecstatic about the car," Palmer continued.

"We removed the complete interior of the car. We built and recovered the seats. We put a new rubber floor in the car. We reinstalled all the equipment to make sure it's working properly - and detailed the car. We painted the car from front-to-back and then we stripped it," explained John Gibbons, president of Emergency Vehicle Restoration.

The process to refurbish their older model Crown Victoria only took about a month. The Waynesboro Police Department said they paid a fraction of what it would have cost to get a new car.
