A Tesla Model 3 of Bridgewater Police Service officially takes to the streets for duty. The car is expected to save thousands of taxpayer dollars each year, while keeping citizens safe and having a positive impact on the environment.
The Tesla Model 3, which was bought by the Canadian Bridgewater Police Service (BPS), enters its first shift on Thursday evening. The officers are glad that the car is finally refitted and ready to perform its duties. BPS expressed its gratitude for the refitting of the car to Code 3 and its rep, Greg Jordan. The Police Service shared the good news on Twitter.
BPS wishes to extend a huge "Thank you!" to Code 3 and its rep, Greg Jordan, for the diligent work to get the Tesla fully outfitted with all the required emergency equipment to ensure it's ready for duty.— Bridgewater Police Service (@policenews) July 14, 2022
"With the goal set for all vehicles sold to be electric by 2035 federally we knew we would eventually have to start making changes but we wanted to see for ourselves how accurate the reports we’ve seen from other communities are for ourselves."
