(Springfield) -- After coping with squad cars well past their prime in recent years, the Illinois State Police is finally getting some new additions to its fleet.The State Police will get 50 new vehicles by the end of this year, with more to come through next summer.
The purchases are being made thanks to a new law this year creating a one-dollar surcharge on vehicle registration fees.
State Police Director Jonathon Monken says the new cars are desperately needed.
Monken says they expect to get 325 new cars by the end of the fiscal year next June.
