    Black IN LEO patrol cars

    How come I don't see this anymore? The black ISP with a gold accent looked cool. Also, how come IMPD doesn't have any black patrol cars? Who gets to decide what colors the agency gets? Don't care for SUVs but we could use some cool black patrol cars.

    Ill and OH have the worst looking state police cars IMO.

    The agency decides what the cars look like. My agency’s cars look like they do because it’s super cheap, and when marking 800+ cars, that’s definitely a factor. Same for ISP.

    Black cars crash more often than light color cars. Been there done that, and we went back to white after merely a year with dark gray.

    Speedway has some really good looking black Chargers IMHO.

    I figured there were some effect in crashes/safety. But still, black cars just looks cooler.

    I like the UK police cars. Nothing subtle or lo-viz about them.

    I think every agency should be black and white Ford PPV’s so we can all see the Disco Pandas!

    Yeah, black vehicles look cool... until about 5 minutes after you leave the car wash. I'll never own a black vehicle again.

    We always had white cars because they were easier to sell. White cars are easier to keep clean, or at least looking clean. If I didn't have time to wash it, I would just wipe off the dust with a towel and spray the tires with Armor All or something.

    Personally, I love the black and white cars. Elkhart PD has them. The cars are actually all black, the doors are vinyl wrapped in white. Two tone cars are harder to sell when they're retired from service.

    While I think you are on point with the cost issues and I can't dispute if dark cars crash more...I see plenty of white cars trashed lol. The fact is with the dark grey cars (all the '07s) people high up on the food chains (IPD & MCSD) wanted a color that would make the "new" department stand out. Now, they knew throughout the whole merger process in 06 that that color grey wouldn't be offered by Ford after '07. But that was one of those 'we'll cross that brisge when we get there situations and the no brainer option was go back to white cars. Kinda like the smokey the bear hats and taxi cab driver hats. Lots of goat roping in that whole deal
