{VIDEO} Introducing Our First New Police Vehicle

The Mountain View Police Department will be replacing our current Ford Crown Victoria Police Vehicle fleet with the all-new Chevrolet Caprice Police Vehicle; and we’re excited to announce the first Caprice is here and ready to hit the streets.

MVPD has a total of 32 marked patrol vehicles (the Crown Victoria was discontinued in 2012), which will be replaced with the Caprices as each one comes out of service.

  • Technological advances
  • Increased fuel efficiency
  • Better performance

More detailed information can be found at the General Motors website. In the meantime, keep an eye out for our new vehicles!
