Police Take Delivery of New Squads

It might look a little weird at first.   La Crosse cops will soon be patrolling the streets in new squad cars.  Kind of station-wagony looking things.

A small Ford all wheel drive SUV taking the place of the ol' rear-wheel drive standby Crown Victoria. The city has just received the first shipment of the new squads from a local dealership and are waiting for the cars to get fitted with all of the gear needed in a modern cop car as well as the propane fuel systems that La Crosse police roll with now.  The new squads cost about 27 thousand dollars new, minus trade.  With a total budget of 33 thousand dollars to get completely tricked out.  Six new cars have been purchased, with the whole fleet expected to change over within three years.
