One of the first marks left by BPD Chief Mike Masterson on the newly assimilated airport police force was the removal of the vanity license plates from the bomb sniffing dog trucks.
For several years under the departed airport manager and airport police chief the bomb dogs had vanity plates which cost taxpayers in excess of $100 each year for the cutsie names like “BAM, KABOOM”, etc.
Masterson has mandated the normal BPD exempt plates which do not cost extra taxpayer money. Good move by the chief–not a big deal, but indicative of a common sense attitude.
