The Crown Point Police Department (Ind.) has received funding to continue using alternative fuels, including the E-85 ethanol blend.

The fleet received $96,000 in grants from the Indiana Department of Transportation and Northwest Regional Planning Commission to continue buying E-85, reports the Chicago Tribune

In 2012, the department first received funding for alternative fuels and began purchasing E-85-compatible vehicles. Now, about half of the fleet's squad cars can run on the biofuel.
