That is such a classic look for police cars. I wish Akron would go that route. Those Akron cruisers are to stupid looking with those blue and yellow colors - Akron needs to go to the tradional black and white too.

Love it. Just like fire trucks are red? Police cars should be black and white.

Great news for white car owners like myself,
when driving at nite, people in front of me would slow down if they could not get a good look at my car thinking I was a cop.

Quit coppying off of Los Angeles, California. Smaller towns look stupid trying to make themselves amongst L.A.P.D. Stay Conserative.

The black community would probably complain that they look too much like the "opressive" LAPD

Oh I'm impressed. Did they go back to the one big red light in the center of the roof. What next..a horse drawn firetruck. WHO CARES? The real news would be that they are doing they're jobs and I could care if they are all unmarked. I lived in Springfield for 30 years and my brother was a Springfield Police officer back in the late 70's. The color of the police car never made a difference to those who wanted to break the law. Put real news on this web site like Santa will be driving a unmarked sleigh at the Christmas DUI check point for Akron Police.

Keep your stupid comments in SC, we sure know how they treat the Black Community there.
