JCSO Soon To Have New Cruisers

(MT. VERNON, IL) — Three new police cruisers will soon be gracing the roads of Jefferson County. Jefferson County Sheriff Travis Allen announced recently the purchase of three Ford Crown Victorias from the Urbana Police Department.

Each of the cars has approximately 60,000 miles on them and was purchased at a cost of $7,200 apiece.
