If you live in Lexington, you should know that the Urban County Council and Mayor revised this issue under the new FOP collective bargaining contract. what was referred to as "take home fleet" no longer exists. Only work-related activities for offices driving cruisers. And current LFUCG policy forbids officers from transporting or purchasing alcohol in cruiser and/or uniform.

If you're going to express your distaste for the police at least be factual.

The lexington area needs super speed cars as well so out cops can go faster through lights that are about to change
