Determination: These three vehicles are not required by Part 1542. They are considered normal equipment needed to monitor traffic and to police airport property and roadways and do not fall under the eligibility criteria for security projects.

Police department replacement of investigative squad car.

Determination: This vehicle is not required by Part 1542. This vehicle is considered normal equipment needed for police activities associated with responsibilities of a major airport and does not fall under the eligibility criteria for security projects.
