DRAPER, Utah. The Draper City Police Department announces they will have a new look for all police vehicles. Patrol officers will soon be driving black and white Ford Explorer 4x4’s while patrolling Draper streets.
Why the change? Police Chief Bryan Roberts says the current white paint scheme and decals do not distinguish the Draper Police Department from other jurisdictions and does not allow the patrol vehicles to be readily identifiable as a police vehicle to the public. The black and white paint scheme will clearly identify the vehicles and allow the Draper Police to have a unique and professional image. The color change will 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 Draper Police patrol division fleet of twenty eight (28) patrol vehicles will be black and white by 2014.
