Town of Haverstraw Police Department
Chief Charles B. Miller
The vehicle design was created by Detective Richard Spatta originally for the Crown Victoria then later adapted for the new SUV Interceptor. The patch on both sides of the vehicle and both license plate's is identical to the patch worn by the department officers which represents Henry Hudson's ship the Half Moon. When Henry Hudson first saw the land next to the Hudson River, he called it "Havastroo" which meant "fields of straw". The name was later adapted to Haverstraw. The colors of the stripe's represent the colors of the uniform also worn by the officers, French blue over navy blue. All of the striping and lettering is 100% reflective ensuring that the vehicle would be highly visible at night. Red letter's were chosen for "Juvenile Aid Bureau" so they would stand out. This particular vehicle is assigned to the department's Youth Detective. Even though most Detective vehicle's are "unmarked", the Departments Chief choose to have this vehicle marked because the Youth Detective makes numerous visits throughout the day at many school's and Youth center's and the Chief wanted the vehicle highly visible.
