CASPER, Wyo. — The Casper Police Department will be getting six new mid-sized police utility vehicles.

The 2020 Ford Explorers will be purchased from Sheridan-based Fremont Motors for $39,575 a piece.

The department will not be trading in any of their current fleet. Current officers will get the new vehicles and the old ones will be kept for new hires, a memo in the city council’s work packet states.
