Lt. Jim Wells Top Davis Productivity Award Winner!

Lt. Jim WellsLt. James D. Wells, Jr., in collaboration with Arizona Attorney General Janet Napolitano and Ford Motor Company, developed enhancements to the fuel system of the Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor police vehicle, all at the expense of the Ford Motor Company.

In addition to the reduction of loss of life and injury to our troopers, FHP saved approximately $357,440 in expenses. Beyond the scope of FHP, this is a nationwide issue. If every police vehicle nationwide were to receive the enhancement alone, the value for this issue amounts to $70 million.
