First Pensacola, Florida police car. In November 1913, discussion and approval took place at the regular meeting of the city commissioners regarding allowing for $600 for an automobile for Chief of Police Frank Sanders. On November 29 the Pensacola News-Journal reported that a large, four-door used Ford was purchased for $950 to be used primarily by the chief, but also by the commissioners as needed. Pensacola finally owned a police car!
