MAHWAH - A Bergen County car dealership donated a new SUV to the Mahwah Police Department.

All American Ford in Paramus donated a Ford Explorer to the Mahwah Police K-9 Unit. The new SUV will replace the department’s old Crown Victoria car.

The owner of the dealership says that they have worked with the DARE program and the U.S. military before, but this is the first time they’ve donated a car to an actual police department.

"The vehicle that they were using was a two-wheel drive vehicle, there were all kinds of issue with the air conditioning.  It was a much older vehicle,” says owner Jon Selman. “We went ahead and got them a new Ford Explorer, four-wheel-drive, state-of-the-art everything."

The Mahwah police chief says that the department needed a new K-9 vehicle but did not have the budget for it.
