The Broken Arrow Police Department will soon have an electric vehicle patrolling the streets.
The department announced it is adding a Tesla Model Y to the fleet.
According to BAPD, the Tesla will be a low profile marked car with subdued graphics and fully lighted.
Officer Chris Walker said the purchase price is a little higher than what they usually spend, but he said it will save the department a significant amount of money over the life of the vehicle.
“After 42 months, this vehicle saves us money.” Walker said.
The department is currently testing out a loaner model before taking delivery of the new squad car.
