Virginia Troopers To Get Ford P.I. Sedans

The Virginia State Police have ordered 144 2013 Ford Police Interceptor sedans to begin replacing a fleet of aging Ford Crown Vics.

The state police now count about 1,110 marked and unmarked Crown Victoria Police Interceptors that will eventually be replaced with Taurus-based Police Interceptors. The agency has also ordered seven unmarked Chevrolet Caprice PPVs for covert enforcement missions, said Corinne Geller, a state police spokeswoman.

The agency will issue the first batch of Ford P.I. sedans to graduates from its new recruit class in October. About three-quarters of the class of 90 trooper trainees will receive Ford CVPIs, and the remainder will receive Taurus-based sedans, Geller told POLICE Magazine.

The remaining Taurus-based sedans will be issued to existing road troopers.

The agency purchased the new marked Ford P.I. sedans for $24,496. The unmarked Caprice PPVs cost $26,260. The agency also purchased several 2012 Chevy Impala sedans for $20,036.

Troopers typically turn in their vehicles once they reach 130,000 miles. The vehicles are then turned over to supervisors until they reach 150,000. They are then issued to civilian personnel.
