Why? Such an impractical car. No ability to detain perps in the back seat - they're forced to radio in for a 2nd unit. They may be fast, but usually you only see coupes used for rural highway speed enforcement.

If they could squeeze a perp in the back seat, it would be pure punishment lol. Probably no room for a cage though.

I see that they already had a Taurus (Interceptor Sedan) at the scene.

Utah Highway Patrol used the 5.0 Mustang when it first came out in the late 80’s early 90’s. Their justification was as a pursuit car and because most times they issued tickets vs arrested people.

There are a couple of small departments in central Utah that drive unmarked Camero’s, a couple of red ones abs a couple of orange ones. They simply got them on a great deal through government purchase and loved being so incognito amongst ask of the tourists.
A lot of departments use fancier cars like that as there “PR” or school resource car to try and impress the students/community groups.

Richland isn't big enough for a pursuit. :) (I'm probably wrong, only been there a few times.)
Interesting find. :)

I've seen that episode on Youtube. As others mentioned, sort of a waste of money...............can't carry prisoners, no push bumper.....

Good for Highway Patrol duty (assuming it has a V8, unmarked) otherwise...................

that is, he said it was laxative, that is on topic. ???
I’m out of my depths here, does this thread need to be moved to off-topic or is it fine here?

Right around 3:08, it looks like there could be a radar antenna mounted against the A pillar as well. Something to look out for in terms of enforcement if driving through the area.

From the looks of this article, they have quite a few of the Camaro SS Patrol Cars. And the one pictured below is Radar Equipped

Not sure if IN still has their Mustangs or not, but at one point they did. @GTO_04 would know if they still exist.

I have not seen any for a few months. They could still be running them in other parts of the state. The probably won't use them as much during the winter months.

I found it hard to believe they have 14-16 of them for Richland County. Probably got them to look good for the LivePD show.
