US$10 million for 200 police cars.

The V.I. Public Finance Authority governing board approved US$10 million for the purchase of 200 new police cars to replenish the V.I. Police Department's fleet, reports The Virgin Islands Daily News (April 5, 2008). It also directed PFA Finance & Admin. director Julito Francis to issue a request for proposals to finance the purchase. It also approved a US$116,000 appropriation for a down payment on the vehicles. In years past, police officers have expressed outrage over the aging and poorly maintained fleet and police officials have said that up to 85% of police cars do not meet contractual standards.
