CHATHAM, Ill. — The Chatham Police Department’s latest acquisition will make it easier for officers to patrol bike trails, community festivals, Glenwood High School football games and other events.

The department’s Polaris Ranger all-terrain vehicle will be able to go many places traditional squad cars can’t, said officer Scott Williams, who spearheaded the effort to purchase the vehicle.
