OXFORD – The Oxford police department is rallying to get another police car. The department has two vehicles, but only one is recognized by the Oxford Village Board and subsequently the village will not pay for anything but simple repairs and insurance costs.
The older car is a black 1998 Chevy Lumina with about 100,000 miles on it. To “keep it going” it would cost over $1,600, said Oxford Police Chief Rich Nolan. “It’s break down is imminent and once it does, that will be the end of it,” he said.
