Police roll out new black-and-white vehicles

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Buffalo police rolled out new black and white Chevrolet Tahoe police vehicles Tuesday. The 12 cars that hit the streets are the first of 49 new police vehicles.

Police say the new design is built to be versatile for a range of tasks. They say it follows a nationwide trend to go back to black-and-white color design for local law enforcement, but there is no plan to change the existing fleet’s colors.

“Public Safety continues to be a top priority in Buffalo, and these newly designed black and white Police vehicles are just another way we are improving the safety of our neighborhoods through increased visibility,” said Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown.
