Winamac Council Approves Police Car Purchase


The Winamac Police Department plans to add another Dodge Charger to its fleet.

Chief Mike Buchanan told the town council the car will replace a 2008 Chevrolet Impala. He adds the Charger offers the best value for the money. He has $25,000 in his budget to purchase a new car. The Winamac Police Department qualifies for the state’s negotiated law enforcement fleet price but will still be able to take delivery of the car through Braun Chrysler in Winamac.

The new car will give the town a uniform fleet of three Dodge Charger patrol cars.
