New patrol unit gives Sweet Home cops bit of a new look

Sweet Home's latest patrol vehicle offers a new look for the Police Department's fleet with the addition of a new Dodge Durango about a month ago as part of SHPD's normal rotation.

City police have used Ford Interceptors since buying their first one in 2013, but this year that vehicle is unavailable.

"The Fords are out of production," said Police Chief Jeff Lynn. "We really wanted to try to stay in an SUV."

Fortunately, when Ford took its Interceptor out of production for product modifications, Lynn said, the Dodge Durango became available.
