Revised Patrol Car Design Features Traditional Look Favoured by Officers Fredericton (July 14, 2010)
Police Chief Barry MacKnight announced today that new patrol cars will feature the instantly recognizable black and white colour scheme favoured by the overwhelming majority of the City’s police officers.
“Last year, we asked the public to help us come up with the design for our new police vehicles and this black and white design was on the short-list,” said Chief MacKnight. “During a review of the basic white with blue and green trim design we initially selected, we discovered most of our officers strongly preferred the retro look of this black and white design and we have accepted their recommendation.”
Chief MacKnight said the design speaks to the traditional values and professionalism of the Fredericton Police Force. The car is basic black with white doors. It features the Fredericton Police Force crest and the City of Fredericton logo.
I’d like to thank all the people who took the time to send us their design suggestions and everyone who assisted in the selection process,” said Chief MacKnight.
