There are many different choices to be made with respect to police vehicle acquistion, utilization, maintenance, and disposition. Cost comparisons among the different atlernatives are an important element in the choices to be made. To make valid cost comparisons, it is necessary to employ the techniques of life-cycle costing. This means the inclusion of all relevant costs and the conversion of costs to an equivalent basis to take into account differences in the timing of expenditures. The report briefly summarizes the results of a larger study which compares the life cycle cost of some of the alternatives associated with police fleet management.
