(NOTE: After the conclusion of this public workshop meeting, I elected to, briefly, rest in a chair in the lobby of this administration building.

Chris M. Ketteman, Lieutenant, Commander, District 3, Enforcement Division, Hamilton County, Ohio, Sheriff’s Department, Cincinnati, Ohio, entered the lobby from the office administration area.

He apprised me that he had recently procured for his “on duty” usage a 2016 Ford Explorer S. U. V.; It is a marked “cruiser.”

This replaces a Dodge Charger marked “cruiser” sedan that he had recently been utilizing for law enforcement purposes.

He elocuted, to the effect, that the current fleet of Dodge Charger “cruiser”  sedans are “…not working out.”)
