New Patrol Cars Get Upgraded Design
Saturday, June 29, 2013

Titusville Patrol cars being put into service this summer received an upgraded look! The Chevrolet Caprice police rated vehicle, designed solely for law enforcement, is a new product from Chevrolet. The long used Impala is will no longer be available in a police package.
 
The goal of the new look is to make the vehicles look as identifiable as a police vehicle as possible. "Visibility in the community is an important part of our overall approach to public safety", said Major Todd Hutchinson, who oversaw the design project. Hutchinson explained that the traditional black & white paint schemes have become increasingly popular around the country as blue and red graphics on white vehicles have soared in popularity in commercial businesses.

Interim Police Chief John Lau encouraged input from all members of the department during the redesign project. The goal was to merge the black and white look into the department's currently designed graphics which includes TPDs mission statement on the rear quarter panels -Promoting Teamwork within our Community. The new design was an overwhelming choice by the officers who drive them. "There is no mistaken this new look, this is a police vehicle", added Lau.

The departments new look, applied by CSI Designs of Titusville, will appear on ten new vehicles being out into service this year.
