The City of Ava took delivery of a new police vehicle Tuesday afternoon. In the photo above, Steve Forrester, sales manager for Republic Ford Lincoln is handing the keys to Police Chief Reggie Johnson. The 2014 Ford SUV Police Interceptor will be put in service as soon as all the necessary equipment and lettering is installed. The specially-designed vehicle is built specifically for law enforcement agencies. Similar vehicles are being used by the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
