MIDLAND, TX (KWES) -

Fighting crime is getting more expensive in the Tall City.

City officials tell us the Midland Police Department is getting a few more replacement cars than usual this year due to an uptick in crashes.

On Tuesday, the city council approved a resolution to reject bids it had received for 17 new cars so they could look for bids that would provide 22 new cars.

Two weeks ago, the city council approved a search for bids to buy a driving simulator for police officers.

It's an investment they hope will provide more training for officers to avoid crashes.
