Morgan Sweet Home Police Officer Rex Bostrom uses the department's new Charger to transport a prisoner. / Charger From page 1 price outperformed all other mod- els, including a new Ford, but it is much more expensive. "So we went with a car that has a decent reputation," Van Eck said. "As far as law enforcement, it's a proven police vehicle." The city paid about $33,000 for the Charger. The Ford Mustang is not an option for Sweet Home, Van Eck said. It is primarily used for traffic duty because it has only two doors. That configuration means it is not a safe alternative when officers must transport a prisoner. A new Ford model and the new Caprice are newcomers to police work, Van Eck said. If this vehicle holds up over the next six months, the department is able to order and officers are still impressed with the Charger, the Sweet Home Police Department will probably order another Charger.
