Commissioners go against leasing sheriff’s office vehicles

Crockett County Commissioners decided against leasing sheriff’s department vehicles during their regular meeting Monday.

At their April meeting, the commissioners heard a presentation from Billy Hughes, a leasing officer with American National Leasing Company based in Wichita Falls, gave the commissioners an overview of the company’s law enforcement leasing program.

He said their lease program is based on a typical county sheriff’s department patrol vehicle, which averages between 30,000 or 40,000 miles per year. He said that at the end of the three-year lease they look at the condition and mileage of the vehicle and determine its residual value using three different sources.

The vehicles come fully equipped with whatever equipment local law enforcement requires.
