CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Police in Cheyenne have a new tool in their crusade against drunken driving.

The Wyoming Tribune-Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/16Dca9K ) police recently unveiled a 40-foot-long vehicle that will house everything police need to test and process suspected drunken drivers. It includes a temporary holding cell and blood alcohol content measurement devices.

Officials from the Cheyenne Police Department officials, along with officials from the Laramie County Sheriff’s Department and Wyoming Highway Patrol unveiled the city’s new DUI Task Force command vehicle on Friday.

The vehicle will assist the 15 law officers whose sole focus is DUI enforcement. It cost about $500,000 in state and federal grant funds to buy and equip.

It also will be used for non-DUI related policing, such as serving as a command post during crisis situations or major accidents.
