Allentown Police Department introduces new color scheme for patrol vehicles

The Allentown Police Department unveiled a change in its patrol vehicle aesthetics.

According to a news release, this update showcases a sleek black-and-white color scheme.

The new color palette was chosen to enhance visibility and align with police departments nationwide, promoting a recognizable and authoritative presence on the streets.

The Allentown Police Department introduced the change Aug. 13 at the city’s annual Classics and Cruisers on Hamilton Street – an event benefiting the Allentown Police Department Honor Guard as well as the America on Wheels Museum.

“Our updated patrol vehicle design is more than just a visual transformation; it’s a representation of our commitment to modernization and effectiveness in serving our community,” Police Chief Charles Roca said. “As the department looks to the future, this change reflects our pledge to uphold public safety and the principles of service and professionalism.”

The community is encouraged to keep an eye out for the gradual transition of patrol vehicles to the new black-and-white design, expected to be fully executed over the course of the next year.
