Disaster
F150

The City of Pittsfield and the USDA partnered together to find the right grant to access funds for a new unmarked police interceptor to continue to help the community fight the war on crime. This vehicle will specifically help in the battle against drugs and allow the town to covertly conduct surveillance on drug dealers and maintain an overall discrete presence in the drug world. As a result of the increased drug enforcement, the city has started to see quick results in decreasing burglaries, thefts, sex crimes, and other serious crimes. Since 2016 officers have made over 200 drug arrests for possession type crimes of illegal drugs.
