Typed this on my break at work and with not many forms I’m apart of this is the one I am most prevalent on.  
 

My state’s police department  released nine specially marked cruisers with the original state police logo and license plates to commemorate their 100th year anniversary as well as honoring fallen Maine State Troopers. While I’ve always liked the classic sky blue cruisers these newer black 2020 FPIUs look pretty nice with the original logo. Am I the only one who thinks that they should just make this their skin for the entire department fleet?

All police cars just look better in black in my opinion, as somewhat of a speed violation specialist myself my favorite cop is the one that is indefinitely in the invisible/barely visible vinyls throw on the sides that can only be legible when directly looking at the side of the vehicle. They tuck the police light bar inside the car and tend to be very quick, more often not the typical police tuned V6. 

In the link below the header picture shows you what I'm talking about.

Yeah those ones are pretty nice. Most departments I’ve actually seen and done any form of work with save those vehicles for supervisors only. You should see the newer “unmarked vehicle” type being used called ghost cars which have the side vinyls except they’re only really visible when hit directly with light and are reflective to vehicle lighting and flashlights. This might be the car you were describing as when I clicked on the link it showed on the header a slick top (Chevrolet Impala?). Here’s an image of a ghost car.

Yeah that's what they are called! Ghost cars! The ones in Georgia are sedans and SUV's so some come in the form of Chevy Impala's. On top of that there are two counties in/around Atlanta that have hellcats as chase vehicles for the super speeders. I recently saw another with a Lamborghini I'm sure courtesy of a local drug dealer.

A Lamborghini PD vehicle? Sounds similar to Dubai’s entire fleet.
