State Police Cars Get New Look
State Police Cars Get New Look
Something old is new again for the Illinois State Police.
 
New cars are now sporting a new logo, with a star between the words state and police. It’s reminiscent of a previous look, but economics also come into play.
 
“We’re seeing the efficiency of being able to put that sticker on one door and one door only,” says Trooper Mike Kindhart, a safety education public information officer assigned to the Pittsfield district. “It’s not costing as much (as it does) to stripe the entire side of that vehicle.”
 
With Ford discontinuing its Crown Victoria, the only sedan with a police package is the Chevrolet Caprice.
