The Kentucky State Police (KSP) will begin issuing 2012 Chevrolet Caprice PPVs to its troopers, as it shifts away from the now-discontinued Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor.

The state police purchased 125 of the vehicles, 100 in gray and 25 in tan, for use by the agency's Commercial Enforcement Division. These models will replace KSP's aging fleet of 2004–10 models.

"Our current fleet is subject to a rigorous maintenance schedule designed to extend the working life of each vehicle as much as possible," said KSP Commissioner Rodney Brewer. "However, law enforcement applications are extremely hard on vehicles. To ensure that our officers can continue to respond to public needs in a safe and effective way, we'll be updating our fleet on a soft conversion basis as current vehicles wear out beyond repair and as funding becomes available."

The Caprice comes equipped with a V-8 engine that meets the performance needs of the state police, according to the agency.
