Important Information - Tropical Storm Barry
Thursday July 11, 2019
Imagine driving down the highway on any old regular day. Up ahead you see police lights, on a car stop. The closer you get you realize that it is not just any police car. It is a 1993 Ford Mustang SSP squad car. That is what some Nebraska drivers can sometimes see- hopefully it’s not trailing behind them! This vehicle is mostly used for parades and other local events, however Officer Cook does get to take it on the road for his daily duties once in a while. This is one of the only SSP (Special Service Package) Mustang’s from 1982-1993 that is not retired.
These vehicles were specially made by Ford to assist law enforcement. They were designed more for highway chasing as opposed to cruising with an upgraded engine and transmission. Roughly 15,000 of these vehicles were sold to police departments around the United States. The Nebraska State Patrol’s Facebook page features a photo of Officer Cook with the vehicle. Next time you are driving down a Nebraska highway and see this police car make sure to give Officer Cook a wave hello!
