The Des Moines City Council recently approved senior police officer Eric Hartman to travel to Charlotte, N.C., from Aug. 19 – 23, to attend the Police Fleet Expo. The expo brings together all the major police vehicle manufacturers along with major vendors of equipment to up-fit police vehicles. The information is said to be important to the department because vendors release their latest equipment to fit the new Ford Police Interceptors, which the City has begun integrating into its fleet. This travel expense comes with a $1,344.88 price tag to local tax payers. CV
