Pickett Sheriff’s Department receives free patrol car

In June of last year, the Pickett County Sheriff’s Department
received information about donations from
Brentwood for police squad cars. According to David
Gossett of the Brentwood Police, after department vehicles
reach a maximum mileage quota, they are then
donated. A written request was made by Sheriff Clois
Brown explaining that Pickett County was a small
county and would benefit from another patrol car.
On April 14th, the request was granted for a 2002
Chevy Impala fully equipped with blue lights, in car
video camera and cage.
Sheriff Brown and Pickett County Executive Stephen
Bilbrey traveled to Brentwood and picked up the car.
A thank you to the Brentwood Police Department and
Mr. Gossett for donating the car to Pickett County.
