Headquarters puts brakes on ALE attempt to buy new fleet

Headquarters has put the brakes on the state Alcohol Law Enforcement’s purchase of a fleet of brand new vehicles.

In between directors, the state Alcohol Law Enforcement put in a purchase order for 31 new vehicles. But ALE was supposed to wait, just like all other divisions in the state Department of Public Safety, for the routine replacement schedule based on mileage.

As a result, headquarters let ALE know that couldn’t happen; the order was canceled and the vehicles were never delivered.

Interestingly, the order was placed on Jan. 4, three days after ALE Director John Ledford resigned from the position. New public safety Secretary Kieran Shanahan has not yet named a replacement. The division is being run by interim director Mark Senter, who was a deputy director.
