Salem Police get 4 new cars

Posted: Updated:
SALEM, VA - You will soon see Salem Police driving new cars.

The department bought four new Chevy Caprices that were shipped from Australia.

Along with the new cars comes a new design. They wanted to update the look that had been in place since the mid 1990s. Officers voted on the design.

Sgt. Michael Crawley says they cost about $50,000 each.

The backseat is made of hard plastic which is easier to clean. There are also solar panels built in to keep the battery charged which is easily run down.

The plan is to eventually update all the cars with the new look.
