New Year Brings New Hybrid Cop Car at NIU
DeKalb, IL – Northern Illinois University's fleet of eight hybrid cars will get bigger beginning in January. When the transportation department placed its first order two years ago, one of those cars went to N-I-U police. That car passed its test period this summer. And now the police department is looking forward to getting a second hybrid car next month. WNIJ's Simone Orendain reports.
