This must be the blue car in question?Today I drove through Gaston and a different Gaston police car was there, this one was white. I usually see a blue colored car that says Gaston Pd on the side, the one I saw today also said Gaston Pd on its side, there were no Washington county sheriff markings on, and both the white and blue cars were the 1997 crown vics so they are definately on the old side.
Once and a while I will see a washington county sheriff sitting by 47, or off the side of the road. So my question now is, since, as stated, gaston pd no longer exists, does Washington county sheriff just use the old cars ocasionally?
Yeah thats what I thought, today there was a deputy in the city. Perched on the side of the road again, he was in a usual Washington County Sheriff Car.I believe the deputy that covers Gaston uses a county SO car, Banks uses a county car and it looks like a normal SO car but says serving the City of Banks on the rear panel with their city logo. I'm assuming the car you are seeing was left over from when Gaston still had a police department and they use it from time to time to slow drivers down. The last few times I've driven through Gaston, there has been a deputy in the town.
