MILWAUKEE— (August 13, 2015) –  An expo tailored for law enforcement personnel from around the country that work directly with police vehicles, the Police Fleet Expo 2015 expects attendance to reach 1,500 in Milwaukee from August 18-21.

The Expo features all the latest new vehicle information from auto manufacturers, plus the latest products from aftermarket manufacturers, suppliers and service providers. Attendees ranging from highly experienced to those new to police fleet management get a hands-on feel for latest products and services.

Seminars by leading experts address topics such as cutting costs and managing fleets of various sizes more efficiently. Valuable networking takes place with other police fleet managers and professionals to share solutions and assist in performing the job more effectively.

A major highlight of the Expo is the Ride & Drive to be held at MATC’s Oak Creek Campus on Tuesday, August 18 from 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. This event provides an opportunity for attendees to test out new vehicle models and equipment on a course designed to challenge maneuverability and precision driving.
