WSP Says Goodbye To Crown Vic's 7/25/2012
It’s the end of an era for the Washington State Patrol. The last Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor ever to be used by the agency has rolled out of the Patrol’s fleet section in Olympia, and is now assigned to a trooper in Spokane.
Ford has stopped making what came to be known as the “Crown Vic.” The car is so beloved by troopers that the Patrol held a small ceremony to mark the occasion. The Patrol is switching to the Chevrolet Caprice as a replacement for its marked Patrol fleet.
WSP spokesman Dan Coon told KOZI this was a decision that the agency had to make after ford stopped making the Crown Victoria.
Coon tells us that the troopers have been through a lot with the Crown Vic’s, but it was time for a change and something that will better meet there needs.
Washington State Patrol expects a full turnover rate with Crown Victoria’s no longer in use within five years.
