No, no, no . . . just no. You're not viewing this in the right frame of mind. Think of this as "truth in advertising." Let's see . . .

Declining morale and trust in leadership, declining hiring and promotional standards, declining officer safety and quality of life, declining clearance rates for homicide and other violent crimes . . .

At least the graphics on the sample vehicle appear to have been spelled co-rectally.

Another stupid "high visibility graphic"
designed to "deter" crime and fool
people into thinking the intentionally
depleted CPD is "everywhere" and able
to mount an effective response to the
rampant violent criminality that has
been accepted by the municipal powers
as the new normal...

...If anything, Police visibility needs
to be reduced in the face of copa/aclu
and "tha' communerty" being ceded control
of The Police and the local judiciary.

Policemen are in more peril than the violent,
death-loving swing-dicks of Dude Inc.

Thanks Rahm.
Thanks Ed.
Thanks Kimesha.

We proposed that all CPD units
be painted a dirty urban gray
with black ghost markings and
NO outwardly visible emergency
lighting.

You know...
Since The Police are the problem,
their public profile SHOULD be
greatly reduced.

"Make da Poleece leave us alone an' shit!"

As you wish.
We're more than happy to oblige you.

Respond.
Report.
Request remains removal.
Relocate.
Repeat.

We remember having fun when j-fled
was making noise about changing CPD
fleet appearance.

Why don't Police Cars have the same
"Keep Back 500 Feet/Vehicle Makes Sudden
Stops/Turns" signage similar to what's
on ambulances?

"You're just being mean and nasty..."

Well... That WAS back when fucks were given.

Sudden stops and turns in THIS anti-Police climate?

Fukdat...

Nothin' but forward motion as you:

Look.
Laugh.
Leave.

What's the story on the CPD Detective getting car jacked in 016? At some point, auto insurance is going to go through the roof, because there are no consequences to this crime in Cook County. Somebody should have a booth at the Heralded Auto Show telling local residents how to avoid being victims. It used to be: Stay out of the South or West Side, but now it is everywhere, including the Gold Coast and 016. Baby "G"

Rather than being level, the words "Chicago Police" are pointing downward at about a 15 degree angle. Considering reality, it should be at least a 45 degree angle. Due to corrupt politics and inept management, the CPD is dead in the water.

White doors, blue fenders and quarter panels. That would make for easy body repair, cheaper too. Thats WHY both cabs and cops cars used to be painted that way...to be able to panel paint without worrying about color match.

New doors or fenders could be painted ready to go when the car came in...leading to best quality repair with the least down time.

Some thug WILL be released from their crime by claiming they didnt believe this was a real police vehicle.

Wait, thats a feature, not a bug!

This is just a means of wasting more money by awarding another contract to make a lobbyist happy.

If you click on the bottom photo and then zoom in on the upper right quadrant, the other car is flying ISP's colors. The graphics are pretty close to the design their marked units were using 30-40 years ago, minus the brown and gold-yellow stripes down the length of the body. Nice and professional looking, instead of the "Hot Wheels" look they went with for a while.

On the north side?

We were getting door-pulls at a disconcerting rate.

One momentous occasion we did fail to lock the doors...
Shame on us.

Us:
"You're a dumbass... How about we take you to

Dumbass Yuppie:
"No! Wait! WAAAHHH!"

We bore an abiding grudge against any taxi
company that was in white livery with a blue
stripe down the side like CPD squads.

Especially when Caprices and Crown Vics were
thick on the ground here.

This livery scheme?

Some clouted advisory committee of a-holes
is laughing up their collective sleeves over
this bullshit.

Bet you any kind of money that blue front and rear
quarter panel masks and the classic CPD Star applique
costs less than this get-up...

I wanted to see the large door decals with the number "12" like some Nascar racer.

That looks like garbage. It was designed by of course a female house mouse who barely worked the street. What a moron paint job!

Not a good design. It looks like a big zipper. Nevermind it’s a read between the lines statement that everything stays within the CPD. Code of silence, clout, exam scam, boy toys, play dolls,etc....“Just ZIP It”.

No commie CAPS star or logo or is it concealed in shadow paint?

Nice they will have like other cities on the front fenders "detective" and "supervisor" which will make them more identifiable, which will add to the presence of more cars on the street! The city is finally terminating the excessive "friends and family" back door leasing programs where the aldermen get the payoffs! This new program will promote more efficiency with parts, only using same makes models same equipment! even the commanders will be getting marked vehicles as they should have all along,this will prevent these goofs from stopping at the bars and trying to be undercover!

Now retired... I used to drive the old blue and white Dodge Monaco and Plymouth Fury squad cars with the single gumball lights.

I like this new design. It looks dynamic.

I remember Superintendent James Rochford saying when he saw the first of the current soon to be retired design, "It still looks like a taxicab."

This doesn't look like a taxicab.

Only drawback is that body repair paintwork would be complicated and cars would be out of service longer.

Damnit man, you’re a genius! Despite the fact we already have the Britt sirens (Hi-lo option), you inspired a great idea:

Make the sirens the circus theme song! It’s right on so many levels. On one hand, it matches the clown car. On the other hand, it depicts 99% of the circus-type drama bullshit we have to deal with. On one foot, it’s also intimidating (creepy as hell). On the other foot, it calls out any goof reckless enough to chase anyone in the first place. Rather than say “checkmate,” I will simply...aaaaaachooo. Oops, sorry, I sneezed on your bare feet and....

Check this out from The Chicago Auto Show... some great displays

I used to drive these blue & whites, I remember the black and white as a kid. I had one of those pedal cars although it was all blue. I considered it an unmarked car.

You're half-right, in that it would be quite the uphill battle to REVERSE the Department's (and the City, County and State's) course . . .

Beat 4793.

Who's behind the wheel of that car?

I'm glad the CAPS logo is gone but I am surprised there is no rooftop numbers for beefers in high windows, drones and helicopters.
