City of Dallas currently has a 100K mile replacement requirement for Marked Police Cars. There is no age requirement. We are spending a lot of money to get to 100K miles on some cars. The City dropped from an earlier requirement of 125K miles several years ago.

The City of Anaheim has a sliding replacement criteria for black/white cars depending on the type of use.

Patrol car replacement is 36 months/85,000 miles.

Gang car repacement is 72 months/85,000 miles

Canine car replacement is 48 months/85,000 miles

 

We will  occasionally replace a Patrol car at 36 months if it doesn't have 85,000 miles if it is in good condition. We will paint it all white and assign it to one of our loaner/pool car fleets to replace an older, higher mileage car.

The city of Everett has a replacement schedule for Marked patrol cars at 100K miles.
No age requirement, however based on usage, our current marked patrol car replacement cycle age is avaraging 4 years.

This will be affected in the future as we look at ways to reduce our carbon foot print. If we reduce the miles driven (and fuel consumed) we will in fact be increasing the age of our fleet, because we will be reducing the miles driven. At this point we are not sure how we will change our replacement cycle (if we go to a mandated carbon foot print reduction program), time will tell. It may require a change in the replacement mileage requirement or we might have to go to a mandated replacement year? Not sure at this time.

We do know that we will be looking at more fuel effecent patol cars and smaller detective cars.

El Dorado County Ca. We run Pursuit Crown Vic's to 105 and 4X4 SSV Expeditions to 110 or 8 years max. After hitting that target, depending on condition of unit, we will run extended mileage in non-persuit functions for another 20-25K. Typically roll into the "STARS" retiree volunteer duty ops. or into admin pool use.
