LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — When a thief in a stolen hybrid car smoked lawmen in Crown Victorias during a highspeed chase through Clark County earlier this year, Arkadelphia Police Chief Al Harris was impressed.

Any question his officers had about whether hybrids had the guts to be police cars was answered that night, the chief said. This fall, the Arkadelphia Police Department will join the growing number of law-enforcement agencies across the country using hybrids when a new fleet of 2010 Toyota Camry Hybrids hits the streets of the southwest Arkansas town.
