COLUMBUS, Ind. — Nearly half of all police patrol cars used in Bartholomew County are part of a upcoming recall by Ford Motor Co. because of a potential steering problem with three of its car models, local law enforcement officials said.

The auto maker is expected to recall 355,000 Ford Crown Victorias — including the Police Interceptor version — and Mercury Grand Marquis and Lincoln Town Cars that were manufactured from 2005 through 2011 model years.

The Columbus Police Department has 27 Crown Victorias that will likely be impacted by the recall, Columbus Police Chief Jason Maddix said.
