Henrico Police vehicles get new look

Henrico Police vehicles soon will have a new look – for the first time in more than 40 years.

The division's 2013 Ford Police Interceptor Sedans have arrived and will be issued to patrol Sergeants and Officers in the next few months. The new vehicles are designed specifically for police service and include specially designed driver's seats, roll-over sensors, a wider wheel base and a more fuel-efficient engine.

The new vehicle decals are reflective and have a clean, modern look.  The new patrol cars will be phased in through the division's vehicle replacement schedule.
