TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A local police agency is now armed with a handful of new cars.

The Terre Haute Police Department recently received nine new vehicles as part of their fleet.

Five of those cars have already been decaled while the remaining four are pending.

The upgraded patrol vehicles will be replacing some of the outdated fleet. 

"The ones we're replaces are all 2011, (models) so they're seven-years-old, with upwards of 100,000 miles on them, and that's rough miles here in the city," Chief John Plasse said. 

These cars all-wheel drive, unlike the current cars. 

Officers have been training with them in different conditions.
