Cruiser donated to Calhoun yesterday (L to R) Jeff Davis, Hancock County Commissioner, Calhoun Deputy Carl Ballengee and Sheriff Joe Woofter

The Calhoun Sheriff's Department has a "new" police cruiser. Calhoun Deputy Sheriff Carl Ballengee made the deal with Hancock County Sheriff Joe Woofter, and the vehicle was donated, free of charge, to Calhoun County yesterday.

The 1997 Crown Victoria has only 93,000 miles, which is "really good for a police car," said Ballengee. The vehicle cost $20,000 new, without equipment.

"The Hancock County folks decided to donate cruisers to departments which needed them," Ballengee said. "We worked with them to complete the deal and appreciates their help."

Ballengee said the cruiser needed a few little touches before it can be placed in service.
