Patrol vehicles were also equipped with tire enhancers and chains to make traveling from scene to scene an easier process.
"Basically we make sure they have the necessary equipment like cleats and reflector vests. We also have multiple units at an accident scene so the visibility of lights is there," St. Ores said. "Several of our squad cars are now SUVs, with all-wheel drive and that makes a big difference but we usually put tire enhancers on the Crown Vics and it does help."
As another round of winter weather is expected to hit today, St. Ores and his officers are doing what they can to prepare for another round of what they experienced Friday.
"There's not a whole lot of prep we can do from our point. Right now we're just doing what we can to get through," St. Ores said. "But if (the ice) doesn't melt and that snow comes, we're going to be in even more trouble."
