Hagerstown Police Department detectives would be allowed to drive their unmarked police vehicles home under a proposal Chief Mark Holtzman made during a Tuesday work session of the City Council. Each of the department's six detectives get called in while off duty an average of 21 times a year, Holtzman told the council. Allowing them to drive the unmarked vehicles home would mean they could respond to a crime scene without first having to switch their personal vehicles for a police car at headquarters, he said.
