SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WSPA) – One of the biggest recalls right now impacts some Upstate law enforcement.
Dodge Charger police cruisers are being recalled because of a fire risk.
The Spartanburg Police Department has 11 Dodge Chargers, but only 4 of them fall under the recall.
The police department says that won’t affect their force.
But other agencies, like Union County, aren’t as lucky.
Almost half of Union County’s fleet are Chargers that need to be fixed.
They only have 5 cars right now, so some deputies will have to drive the car until there is time to change it.
“It’s annoying, the job itself is a hardship and when you have to worry about getting from point A to point B because of your vehicle that’s just an added burden,” Union County Sheriff David Taylor said.
The recall is only for police cruisers from 2011 through 2014.
It also includes thousands of Ram pick-up trucks.
