It wouldn’t be the first police force to do so, but the Sheriff’s Office in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania is reportedly considering adding Tesla’s to their fleet of cruisers.

According to a Facebook post by the sheriff’s office, they were given the opportunity to test a Tesla Model 3 this week. If the EVs prove themselves to be affordable and cost effective they will be taking a very serious look at purchasing the un-released Model Y to add to their department.

With sufficient range to cover the average shift more than twice (150-250km per shift), electricity costs way below the annual fuel bill of a comparable SUV, little to no maintenance, and the incredible performance of a Tesla, the Model Y (and any Tesla for that matter) becomes a pretty enticing choice when it comes to budget conscious police departments.

It’s only a matter of time before we start seeing more Tesla and other EV’s become part of police forces around the world.
