Polk County Sheriff’s Office Selling Former Law Enforcement Helicopter on GovDeals

County Offers 2014 McDonnell Douglas 369E Helicopter for Sale

WINTER HAVEN, Fla., Dec. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Polk County Sheriff’s office has once again partnered with GovDeals, the leading online marketplace for government agencies and educational institutions to sell surplus assets, to offer a 2014 McDonnell Douglas 369E Helicopter for sale. The former law enforcement aircraft is at auction until December 12, 2022.

Maintained by Dixie Jet and Rotor Service in Lakeland, Florida, the helicopter has no history of damage. A complete maintenance history and record of airframe and component hours will be sold with the aircraft and is attached to the auction page. This is the second aircraft sold by Polk County Sheriff’s office. They previously utilized the GovDeals platform to sell a 2013 McDonnell Douglas 369E in October 2021.

“We are hopeful we will find a good home for this aircraft as it is still in great condition and will no doubt serve its next owner well for many years to come,” said Ashley Provenza, purchasing supervisor for the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.

GovDeals supports its sellers’ sustainability goals by helping them extend the life of their assets, with a focus on zero waste through reuse and recycling.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office is asking potential buyers to pay a refundable $5,000 bid deposit prior to placing a bid on the helicopter. The deposit will be applied to the final price of the auction for the winning buyer and will be refunded to all other bidders.

Serious buyers are encouraged to inspect the aircraft prior to placing any bids. To bid on this aircraft or any other assets on GovDeals, potential buyers must first create an account and complete the free registration form. New bidder registrations can be completed at GovDeals.com/Register.
