WICHITA, Kansas – The Wichita Police Department announced on Wednesday its newest paint and decal scheme for the department fleet.
The new scheme will be used as new cars are phased into the fleet. The cars will be all black and the decals are in light gray.
The project began in early 2014. Members of all divisions from the department reviewed the current vehicle paint and decal scheme in an effort to update the design.
“Ultimately, we went with black vehicles, and the design is a little more simple than our current design. Reason for that is cost savings. The decal will stand the test of time and look good on vehicles for years to come,” said Captain Brian White, Wichita Police Department.
The committee completed a department wide survey in an effort to identify which color the officers wanted the new vehicle to be painted.
The last time the fleet design was changed occurred in 2006, which is the scheme that is currently seen on police vehicles.
