Meeting Date: 07/25/2012  
Vehicle Policy - Amended for Law Enforcement
Submitted By: Tyner Little, Commissioners Court Admin
Department: Commissioners Court Admin  

Information
RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider approving an amended Nueces County Vehicle Policy.
BACKGROUND

Commissioners Court approved a Vehicle Policy on March 28, 2012.  At that time, Law Enforcement Vehicles were exempted from the entire policy.  

DISCUSSION
After further review, it has been determined that our Vehicle Policy would be strengthened by exempting law enforcement personnel and vehicles from only the provisions that are inconsistent with the needs and behaviors of law enforcement in carrying out their duties rather than exempting them from the entire policy.

To summarize briefly, it is recommended that law enforcement personnel and vehicles be exempted from the following provisions of the Vehicle Policy:
1.  Article VI. A. 1.    No parking zone prohibitions.
2.  Article VI. A. 3.    Leaving a vehicle running or unattended.
3.  Article VI. C. 4.    Use of headlights and parking lights.
4.  Article VI. C. 10.  Sounding horn when reversing.
