Sturgeon Bay Police will get all of its Ford Explorer police vehicles

The Sturgeon Bay Police Department is asking the city to purchase two 2019 Ford Explorers before the company redesigns the vehicle.  Ford plans to change the Explorer from a standard engine to a hybrid engine come spring.  That's creating a demand for the standard engine vehicles from police agencies nationwide and prompted Ford to limit purchases to two vehicles per agency.  Sturgeon Bay Police Captain Dan Brinkman says that won't be a problem for his department thanks to advanced planning.



Sturgeon Bay's Purchase, Finance and Building Committee will consider a recommendation on the purchase of the Explorers.  If adopted, the matter will go to the full city council for approval.
