One Rochester suburb police department has taken necessary action to combat the illegal use of the off-road vehicles, with something that is better equipped to chase down lawbreakers.

The Irondequoit Police Department announced last week they have unveiled new four-wheeler vehicles to help crack down on off-road vehicles in the Rochester area.

The new vehicles are designed to go places that traditional police vehicles cannot go to, in order to apprehend those who are illegally using ATV's and dirt bikes.
