Lexington Police Department gifts Lexington One’s Technology Center second police cruiser
Lexington, SC (Paul Kirby) – Recently, Chief Terrence Green of the Lexington Police Department presented the keys to an older Lexington Police Department patrol cruiser to Lexington Technology Center’s director Bryce Myers and Instructor Ed Rivers. This vehicle will be used by students in the Law Enforcement Services program.
The car is still fully functional but had seen enough service with the department to be deadlined. This means that the car has reached a point in its service life where it is no longer economically feasible or safe to use for everyday patrolling. The cruisers still has enough life left in it that the students will be able to use it in scenarios as a part of their education law enforcement careers.
This is the second such car that Lexington has gifted the school. The first, another Ford much like the one they received this week, has been used regularly to teach the students in the course a multitude of law enforcement techniques. These skills include the proper way to conduct high risk traffic stops, prisoner transports, and basic things like learning how to change a tire, and other important police procedures. They are invaluable tools in assisting in the education of students who may have a desire to enter a career in law enforcement.
