Sullivan Police Department
Chief George R. Counts
In the several years leading up to 2012 the Police Department received numerous complaints that no one ever saw our units patrolling. While this certainly was not the case, our 7 marked patrol units at the time were unremarkable white sedans with gold and black lettering. In order to become a more visible fleet, Chief Counts along with the Command Staff opted for a more visible and "retro" black and white patrol vehicle. While black and white was traditional, the Department also wanted to remain contemporary. The Sullivan School District bears the colors of black and gold which compliments the mascot of the Eagle. The Police Department decided to venture away from the traditional police red/blue and went with gold and black. Working with a local sign company the Department selected a cutting-edge font and applied the package using a vinyl wrap and all-reflective decal combination. The package is complimented by our reflective patch on the front quarter panels and Dial 911 on the rear. We are also proud to be the only rural police agency in Missouri to be certified by the Missouri Police Chief's Charitable Association and display our certification decal on the "C" post of the vehicle. The Department selected gold and black license plates to identify the individual units. Since the change, the department receives numerous compliments and we now have a stylish and visible fleet.
