Greensboro Police Department may need More Cop Cars

A report a few weeks ago shows that Greensboro Police Department need more patrol vehicles. Greensboro has a population of 288,000 people & has 223 patrol cars. Winston-Salem has a population of 243,000 people & has 473 patrol vehicles. Asheville has 90,000 people but has 235 patrol vehicles and High Point has 252 patrol cars with a population of 111,000 people. With the lack of police cars, GPD makes up for that in police officers. Greensboro has 27.3 officers per 10,000 persons and the average is 27.5 But due to the lack of vehicles the response time is 5.4 minutes which is higher than the 5.4 minute average.
