Hickory Hills Police Department
Chief Alan Vodicka
Hickory Hills, IL
Wishing to distinguish our Department from the "traditional" black & white cars of the neighboring communities, we chose an all black vehicle and incorporated red, white, & blue into the design as a patriotic gesture.
Secondary to our desire to break from the "standard" black & white, was the economic benefit of a solid colored vehicle. Our department saved $1000 per car by eliminating the need to infuse a second base color (paint or vinyl wrap). Additionally, as our vehicle fleet is replaced, the department will receive more money at auction, as solid colored vehicles have better re-sale value than B & W.
