Menlo Park PD gets Smart – and cute!

by Chris Gulker on October 7, 2009

mppd_smart_car_3Menlo Park Police Department City Service Officers Tom Dayharsh (L) and Rich Bell smile as they prepare to put MPPD’s latest  ‘cruiser’ into service on its first day.

The car, a Smart ForTwo, was purchased under the Federal ‘cash for clunkers’ program and joins a golf-cart-sized Cushman  in the Parking Enforcement fleet. Dayharsh and Bell say they will alternate driving the two vehicles. The car is equipped with a tiny low-profile light bar at the rear and reportedly gets 33mpg around town – no word on the Cushman’s mileage.

The InMenlo photo dept. thinks this is the ideal staff car… please order 2 from Office Depot or wherever you get them…
