The budget for the city of Joplin, Mo., police department allows for the purchase of seven new vehicles, but finding the cars has been a challenge in and of itself, according to KSN.
The department had been purchasing Dodge Chargers outfitted for law enforcement use, but has been having issues buying new ones.
JPD Capt. Will Davis said, “Coronavirus kind of played a big impact on manufacturing with vehicles – we did have some factories that shut down. There were certain vehicles that weren’t available.”
