Apparently, the love of electric cars is not plentiful in Winslow Township, and people aren't afraid to show their displeasure for the local police department driving one around town.
Here are some of the comments shared on the Winslow Township Police Department page:
- Winslow needs to get its roads fixed before they need electric police cars.
- An electric police car? How will it make a 12 hour shift? I hope it was a grant purchase. The tax payers should not be paying for this!
- Don’t worry. They will just raise our taxes to offset it.
- I hope it works and has the duration for a shift, or we will need some long extension cords!
- I’m sorry you amazing officers have to drive that thing.
- If it can go around 247 miles it won't last an 8 hour shift, nice try.
- What a joke. An emergency vehicle that could quit running on an emergent call.
- Can we sell that Junker and fix the roads ?
- Waste of money this is what tax dollars go to.
- Talk about an inflated police budget…And police wonder why people hate them lol. No reason why they need brand new electric mustangs, getting out of control.
- So what happens when the battery dies in the middle of a chase? Waste of money.
Honestly, I've driven one of these Ford Mustang electric vehicles. I love it! Plus, it's FAST! I tell people it's like a roller coaster.
I think it's a great move, Winslow PD. Go catch the bad guys!

LOOK: See America's 50 Best Beach Towns
Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
