[ARCHIVED] Like the Design of the New DPD Police Cruisers?

Davidson, N.C. , June 18, 2008 – Notice the newly designed police cruisers cruising around town? If you are a fan, you can show your approval by voting for the design online.

The new look is being considered for an award by LAW and ORDER MAGAZINE’s Fleet Design Contest in the category of Best Support Vehicle, Command Post, CSI Vehicle for Municipal 10 to 50 Officers, East. What makes the department especially proud is it was created by one of its own – Officer David Houk.

Houk, who has been with the department for three years, was trained as a graphic designer and it was he who came up with the original concept.

“Officer Houk’s design was chosen after several drafts to stand out from surrounding agencies and also to communicate our belief in community-oriented policing,” said Chief Miller. “We believe black on silver is the best color combination to communicate professional policing. The design displays the town seal on both sides of the cruiser. Our town is historical and the seal depicts the historical townscape. The font used on the sides is the same font used in the seal, thus unifying the entire design.”

To vote for the design visit and select the category municipality between 10 and 50 officers, East. Voting ends on June 30, 2008.
