York County Sheriff’s Office rolls out new line of patrol cars

Ford Motor Company’s new line of Police Interceptors is making its debut in York County, as the Sheriff Bruce Bryant rolls out a new line of patrol cars for his deputies this week.

Like many law enforcement agencies across the country, the department was faced with a tough decision after the Ford Motor Company phased out the workhorse Crown Victoria in 2011.

York County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Trent Faris you can expect to see the new Ford Interceptor hitting the streets of York County — a decision that took some time to make.

Faris say these new vehicles were chosen for better fuel mileage when crisscrossing York County’s 696 square miles.

As of this week, nine new Interceptors are on the road in York County.

Faris says the new vehicles get better fuel mileage — an average of 18 miles per gallon.

The vehicles will be phased in the years to come as older vehicles are retired from service.
