Salisbury Police Department To Go To All Ford Explorer Fleet


One of the biggest bungled decisions by Barb Duncan and Jim Ireton was choosing the Chevy Caprice to replace the aging Crown Victoria fleet. Well we are in for a great upgrade as the Salisbury Police will become an all Ford Explorer force, even for road patrol. Honestly when looking at the cost its a better deal to go this route

I think you have gotten all the mileage on the pizza line you are going to get now you are just making yourself look bad.

10:19 - Police Departments are constantly purchasing new vehicles in a rotation. One of the issues with the Caprices is that many officers do not comfortable fit in the seat with all of their gear on. Some officers due to height do not fit in comfortably.

Those were also the V-6 version of the caprice, that does not come with the same heavy duty cooling and transmission features as the V-8 version which is sold at the exact same price. The Ford Pursuit Utility vehicle is a V-6 all wheel drive setup. I would wait to see how the reliability of the new vehicles stands up to the city environment.

About time. MSP switched 3 yrs ago.

I would wait to see how the reliability of a V-6 all wheel drive setup is before you praise the decision. The V-8 version of the caprice comes with heavy duty cooling and transmission features unlike the V-6 versions Salisbury used.

The cars the police department is using now are very difficult to work with. They are too small on the inside and it's difficult to maneuver.

About time... etc etc, blah blah. Those Caprice's were just purchased not too long ago. THIS is why you "city" people pay your high taxes. Chew on that, and swallow. Such a sham. If we had one, JUST ONE, competent public sector employee in this area, this decision would have been made long before they spent the money on the waste.

Should be great choice if equipped with POLICE PACKAGE....not the everyday V-6 loaded with electrical equipment that kills the HP.

I'd put more money into hiring more officers. Get back to being proactive. Saturation patrols, stings, and bike patrols.

I really do not know where all the money comes from. New police cars,New fire houses and equipment and tons of expensive salaries to go with it all.
Be nice to see how some of them gang ferrels will fit in the back of that thing.I wonder if there a extra net or cage for there dreadlocks.

I can`t speak for the new explorers but historically all of the ford expeditions and ford explorers have a bad track record for having weak transmissions.
The transmissions have been known to die after only 50,000 miles but by 120,000 miles they will certainly need to be replaced.That`s been the track record for gently driven privately owned ones,so for a police vehicle they`ll be lucky if all of them don`t need new transmissions before 100,000 miles.
Some slick salesman made a good commission by suckering the city into buying a whole fleet of these lemons.
as the old saying goes, if life gives you lemons,make the tax payers pay to turn them into ford explorers and maintain them.
The politicians don`t care it`s not their money, they may have even got a nice little kickback on the deal.

Unless you are Brent Black with MSP. He's never out front leading anything. He's too busy sticking his nose up his supervisors ass trying to get promoted. Biggest fucktard in MSP history. Wouldn't know how to lead a pet rock out of its box using both hands. He would force a subordinate to do it, make them document it on several reports then tell headquarters how wonderful he is and that he was responsible for getting the rock out of the box. Cornholio has more sense that that ass clown.

Do we really need to replace all these vehicles. Sounds like the city and county both need a fleet adviser to steer the taxpayer money where it should go on keeping or replacing vehicles.Over the last 25 to 30 years the city and county police budget has grown in leaps and bounds.When you have to babysit the non working gimme generation with too much time on there hands and no ambition or skill set to become self sustaining this is what you have.Salisbury reminds me of Detroit city these days.

Good Points! Sad that we have to feed them, educate them, house them and pay to arrest them. The most uncivilized race in the world and Democrats want to relinquish "white power" to them. WTF!

What kind of "maneuvering" do they have to do that requires brand new SUV's?

Please tell me how Law Enforcement did their jobs without SUV's 20 years ago and before? Just part of the entitlement crowd!

Well did you see where the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office just got 2 brand new Harley Davidson motorcycles for of all things parades?

If I was the Mayor they would be driving Ford Focus's. Really, why do they need anything else? All they do is drive around town. It isn't like they need something for a high speed chase.

I have a 2001 Ford Escape(gently driven) with 115,000 miles on it and the Transmission just went up. I went on line to see if it was anything simple and I found many Forums talking about the Ford Transmissions failing them. I also have a For Expedition and the transmission has been acting up on that one as well, but hasn't failed me yet. I can not believe that Ford hasn't done anything about this problem. I am saddened that the Government hasn't forced Ford to fix these damn problems as well. I have been a Ford man all my life and after this I believe that I may have to go to another vehicle.

HaHaHa! I don't know this Brent Black, but it sounds like someone is Butthurt by him. At the Salisbury Barracks it shouldn't be hard to narrow down.

Don't let Mare Fake Day read this, you will cause him to have a stroke. He has done so much for da 'Bury since he become da Mare. He brought them from being the Arm Pit of the Eastern Shore to being the Ass Crack of the Eastern Shore. Don't say anything about negative Salisbury on Facebook because he will attack you. I saw where he posted an attack on a citizen and called him a troll.
