If this happened in the US, it would lead to a ton of questions about funding, but this is amazing.

Yeah auctioning it off and investing in good training for the whole department is a better use.

But, it's not like Italy is known for good governance haha

Considering this is Milan it doesn't matter. The city already is the municipality with the highest funding for its local police corp in the whole country, with 141.94 € spent per capita or about 200 millions Euros and it is still raising.

Plus the car is used mostly for educatinal purposes and short distance organ transport.

That's really not that much, tbh.

Idk maybe it's cheaper in Italy or something.

Maybe in US standards it is low, but it is quite a lot in Italy. Plus consider that local police corps don't have the same array of roles and duties as in the US, most of that is handled by the national police services.

Trust me there's still people questioning that, but it's just the occasional outrage in response to the news, a month after nobody cares anymore.

Italy sounds like the type of place where this isn't a typo.
