The Colony Police Department
Chief Joseph Clark
The Colony, TX
The 2009 Ford Mustang got its start with The Colony Police Department as one of the undercover narcotics vehicle. It was later turned over to the School Resource Officer. The Chief thought the Mustang would be a great tool to bridge the gap between the police and students in the community. Having a sports car is an attention getter and conversation starter and makes it easier for students to approach the SRO. The Colony High School and the SRO started fund raising efforts to wrap the vehicle in the high school’s colors of black and gold. The Cougar Nation mascot head was incorporated onto the hood along with the cougar stretched across the side. The Colony Police Departments patrol vehicle graphics were also added in The Colony's colors of blue and white. The design started with a vision by the SRO on paper before it was handed over to a company named Pigment Press in the bordering city of Lewisville Texas that helped bring this project to life. Claw marks across the car looking as though it was tearing through metal were added as well that really makes it stand out when driving down the road. Emergency lights were added to the interior of the Mustang to keep with its smooth and slick look. The Colony, or as we like to call it The City by The Lake, now has a great addition in its fleet that our community can be proud of and show off.
