Steubenville Police Adding Eight New Cars to Fleet

Posted: Updated:

A local police department is saying out with the old and in with the new - police cruisers that is.

The Steubenville Police department had some extra money in their maintenance fund to spend, so instead of putting more wear and tear on their old cruisers, they'll be buying five new ones as well as three unmarked cars for the detectives.

Police Chief Bill McCafferty said many of the cars currently being used have over 100,000 miles and also have paint peeling off. He added that the new cars are all-wheel drive, so they will be perfect for weather like we've had this winter.
