MELROSE, Mass. — Melrose is mulling plans to slap advertising on cop cars to boost law-enforcement funding.
Officials have asked local businesses if they would be interested in sponsoring new cruisers to replace a fleet of aging vehicles that is "falling apart."
"I don't want a police car looking like a NASCAR, but I'm also a realist and I know we can't maintain the fleet unless we act creatively," said Mayor Robert Dolan.
