McKinney’s police cars are getting a facelift. Starting immediately, you will begin to see new police cars patrolling the streets of McKinney. Above is the Ford Interceptor and below is the Chevy Tahoe that many of McKinney’s finest will now use to travel the streets of McKinney.
Several changes set these new cruisers apart from the cars the police department uses currently. The new cars feature the tagline: Duty. Honor. Service.
“Though the tagline has been said by officers for years, now it is proudly displayed on the cars as a reminder of the core mission,” said Anna Clark, communications and media manager for the City of McKinney.
In addition to the new tagline, the new police cars also feature a new color scheme. The black and white color scheme is “more noticeable and more reflective for nighttime visibility,” Clark said. Only the new vehicles in the police fleet will have the new color scheme.
According to Clark, there are currently 24 new vehicles in McKinney’s police fleet. The older vehicles will be replaced gradually as they are removed from service, but none of the current vehicles will be repainted in the new color scheme. Eventually all the McKinney police vehicles will feature the new slogan and new color scheme.
