More police turning to SUV squads

Several police departments have been adding SUV squads to their fleets in recent years, and a local police chief expects to see more in the future.

Menasha Police Chief Tim Styka says the shift began when Ford introduced a sedan, and an SUV version, of a new vehicle, when it discontinued the Crown Victoria in 2011.

Styka says the SUV also gets better gas mileage, and has more cargo space, than the sedan. He says both vehicles have the same pursuit rating.
