SPARTANBURG, S.C - Spartanburg Public Safety is considering a program that would let more officers take home patrol cars. They say this will prevent excessive wear and tear on those patrol cars and also means faster response times.

According to the Herald Journal, Spartanburg recently added 14 vehicles to their fleet. 

“We're still in the research process… but increasing the take home program, that's our ultimate goal,” Maj. Steve Lamb told the Herald Journal.

Police leaders say marked cars in front of an officer's home is not only a crime deterrent, but it will also let the officer respond to crime faster, because when they walk out the door, they are ready to go. In addition to that, the program may also reduce replacement costs for patrol cars and extend the life of the cars.
