EPD gains new building to house specialty unit vehicles

Posted: Updated:

Evansville police are showing off a new vehicle storage facility on West Indiana Street.  

The building will house all tactical unit response vehicles, including the bomb disposal unit. There is also office space for traffic units. 

Officials tell us the building is a huge improvement.

"This facility does two things for us. It allows us to keep our emergency units in a centralized location so we can have an efficient response regardless of where the emergency is. It allows us to bring all our equipment together. For the last few years, we've had different equipment in different places because we didn't have the room to put everything together," said Jason Cullum with the EPD.

The new location used to be part of the Coca Cola Distribution Plant.
