Mayor Backs Off from Cutting Police Perk

Nov 15, 2011

In the wake of criticism from Lexington's police union, Lexington Mayor Jim Gray announced Monday that the city would postpone its plan to alter the police department's home-fleet program, which allows off-duty officers to use their cruisers for recreational purposes. The proposed change, which would have limited where and for what purpose off-duty officers could have driven city-owned vehicles, was revealed to officers Friday via email from Police Chief Ronnie Bastin.
