With the addition of the 2014 patrol cars, Colorado Springs Police Department will have a new paint and decal scheme. CSPD will have three different marked decal systems for patrol cars. There are 28 black Dodge Chargers with white decals, 24 cars with a white body color and black decals and 175 white body cruisers with blue decals.Cops also run around enforcing traffic laws on motorcycles, 18 of them, all personalized with the officer's name painted on the front wheel cover. Buckley says each motorcycle officer has his or her own because the suspension is adjusted to suit them individually. So here's what that looks like.
Based on current replacement criteria it will take approximately 8 to 10 years until the CSPD Patrol Fleet is uniformly black and white. Due to materials and labor cost as well as time expense, CSPD will not repaint the white body cruisers to black with white decals.
This new paint and decal scheme will help the public readily identify patrol cruisers providing a highly visible profile within the community we serve.
CSDP maintains a fleet of 645 units of all types to include; 43 special equipment such as mobile generators, trailers, fork lifts, and tractors. There are 602 automotive units in inventory with 227 patrol cruisers. Patrol cruisers are replaced when they meet the criteria of 4 years in service and 90,000 miles. All other department vehicles are rotated when they are in service for 8 years and have at least 80,000 miles. Motorcycles are replaced every 5 years.
On Tuesday, June 3, 2014, from 09:00AM until 11:00AM the three different styles of patrol cruisers as well as a police motorcycle will be on display at the Police Operations Center if the media would like to examine them and photograph the different paint schemes and decal styles.
