DRAPER — The Draper Police Department will have a new look for its police vehicles.
Patrol officers will soon be driving black-and-white Ford Explorer four-wheel drive vehicles while patrolling Draper streets.
Police Chief Bryan Roberts said the current white paint scheme and decals do not distinguish the department from other jurisdictions and do not allow the patrol vehicles to be readily identifiable as a police vehicle to the public. The color change is also designed to help citizens see the patrol cars, which may encourage motorists to voluntarily comply with traffic regulations.
The current white patrol cars and newly purchased patrol cars will be transitioned to the black and white paint scheme within the next two years. The patrol division fleet of 28 vehicles will be black and white by 2014.
