Mercer Island Police Get Props For Low Emissions Vehicles

The Seattle Times highlights the MIPD for buying a hybrid fleet vehicle. I’ll let you read the article, but will highlight the intriguing statement that in addition to dependability and reliability:

“Officers have already discovered some unique advantages, including the car’s quietness when it is run on electric-only, which can be helpful, [Dave] Jokinen [the department’s operations commander] said.”

Heh heh. I wonder how they’re taking advantage of that quietness and I wonder if MIHS students rue to purchase of said vehicle.
