The Beaufort City Police Department participates in a take-home car program. This program has proven to be an asset for citizens as well as officers. Assigned cars have lower maintenance costs, which bring a higher resale value after the car is taken out of service. Officer assigned cars give the city a higher visibility of Police presence. Officers are responsible for the cleaning of the cars and scheduling of maintenance. Maintenance is handled through First Vehicle Services located on Old Shanklin Road.
