SNOHOMISH COUNTY, Wash. – The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office announces its search for an all-electric patrol vehicle to add to its fleet and help promote clean energy. With approximately 250 patrol vehicles, Sheriff’s Office personnel drive over 4.5 million miles per year. The current fleet includes approximately 30 fuel-efficient hybrid vehicles. 

 

By selecting an all-electric patrol vehicle, the Sheriff’s Office is helping lead the way towards clean energy and is contributing to the County’s Sustainable Operations Action Plan which includes a goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from transportation. 

 

The all-electric vehicle will serve as a fully functioning police patrol vehicle with the ability to respond to emergency calls, carry equipment, transport arrestees, make traffic stops, and perform daily police work.  

 

The Sheriff’s Office plans to have an all-electric vehicle selected and fully equipped for patrol by the end of 2021.
