Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2022, $4,000)

Frequently, the post-incident or post-crash inspection of motor vehicles requires the employment of a vehicle lift for under-carriage inspection.  Without a vehicle lift, the task is nearly impossible and usually unsafe.  The Tuxedo 2-Post Hydraulic Vehicle Lift is capable of raising a vehicle weighing up to 9,000 pounds up to 72 inches high. 

A lift at the Huntington Police Department off-site facility would provide the ability for investigators to appropriately document all sides of a vehicle and collect trace evidence safely while doing so in a secure facility ensuring the chain-of-custody is strong. This would increase the rate of crimes solved by forensic evidence that could be obtained from vehicles that was previously unavilable without a vehicle lift.
