City of Monroe to Donate Patrol Cars to Grambling State University Police Department

Tuesday, September 6, 2016 - 3:45pm

The media is invited to the following event


Mayor Jamie Mayo and Monroe Police Chief Quentin Holmes will officially donate two used police units to the Grambling State University Police Department.  The donation has been approved by the Monroe City Council at a previous meeting.  The two Ford Crown Victoria vehicles were previously used for patrol by the Monroe Police Department.  Although they are 2007 and 2008 model vehicles, both units have low mileage (52,576 miles and 64,140 miles).  This donation to the Grambling State University Police department falls in line with the 2016 City of Monroe theme “Strengthening ties between our town and gowns,” putting emphasis on creating more partnership, education, economic development and marketing opportunities with the University of Louisiana at Monroe, Grambling State University, Louisiana Tech University and Louisiana Delta Community College.
