New Interceptor for Lovington
The village of Lovington recently placed its new 2017 Ford Explorer Police Interceptor in operation with help from the John E. Timm Charitable Trust of Arthur. The Trust donated $11,000 toward the vehicle purchase with the village paying the balance to Wright Automotive of Hillsboro after trading the 2010 Chevrolet squad car. Pictured are Chief of Police Christian Swisher, Pam Anklam Police Trustee, Arthur Mayor Matt Bernius Director of the Timm Trust and Lovington Village President Jim Minor. Rodney Stanfill of Central Service Center switched equipment from the old squad car, and past president Barry Morgan designed graphics installed by Dynagraphics of Decatur. Lovington has two full time and five part time patrolmen.
