Guelph Police are getting greener—introduces its first hybrid cruiser

The force’s first hybrid cruiser, a Ford Fusion, is set to take to the road next week and three hybrid SUV’s to be used by front-line officers are ordered and expected early this summer.

Jim Turow, who manages the Guelph Police vehicle fleet, hopes that within the next few years all of the force’s 35 patrol vehicles will be hybrids. Turow estimates that would save the force roughly $50,000 annually in fuel costs.

“The manufacturers have guaranteed us 25 percent fuel savings, but we think it will be much more,” Turow said.
