Buyers interested in purchasing used state or local police cars can do so through sites such as eBay and Craigslist or by visiting a local police vehicle dealer. Additionally, many state police departments regularly hold auctions for retired vehicles.
The process for buying a used police car is similar to buying any used car in that the buyer needs to check the basic condition of the vehicle first. However, the buyer needs to be aware of the fact that police cars typically experience a higher level of use compared to other cars, and they often carry special modifications related to police use. Some buyers may be uncomfortable with the history of the vehicle, such as knowing it was used to hold criminals.
