2010 Police Vehicle Design Contest Winners: Part 3 of 3
Written by PFM Staff
SHERIFF UP TO 25 OFFICERS–EAST
WASHINGTON COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE
This design was chosen because the “Sheriff” identification is clear, but it is not overwhelmed by graphics. Gold was selected as the accent color as it works well against the black background, in addition to being the color of their badges and the dominant color in their department patches.
JUDGES COMMENTS: This car is simple with a plain front. The side looks cool, and the graphics are well proportioned. The word “Sheriff” is a good size in relation to the county name. The star on the front fender is simple and effective.
SHERIFF UP TO 25 OFFICERS–WEST
DAVISON COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE
For this vehicle, a local graphics shop submitted design options to the sheriff and chief deputy tying together elements from past vehicle designs. The black and gold color scheme was chosen to represent the traditional colors of sheriff’s offices in the area. Other than the black striping, all material is reflective. The county’s name is proudly displayed on the side to distinguish to the public who is operating the vehicle.
JUDGES COMMENTS: This vehicle’s design has a nice color contrast. It is clear, and you can see the lettering and graphics very well. The striping is very original.
SHERIFF OVER 25 OFFICERS–EAST
UNION COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE
The Union County Sheriff’s Office feels that the design of this vehicle, along with the professional appearance of the graphics, makes it stand out among other law enforcement fleet vehicles in the county. The reflective hood scoop decal, new to the graphics package, was an additional feature and adds to the intimidating appearance of the vehicle.
JUDGES COMMENTS: The yellow “Sheriff” decal along the hood scoop is a cool and unique detail. The star is a nice size; it is large and clear and identifies the vehicle as a sheriff’s car.
SHERIFF OVER 25 OFFICERS–WEST
MARION COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE
This vehicle was designed to represent a respectful and clean pillar to the community. The gloss black and green color scheme is bold, strong, and indicates diligence and trust for the community. The new design saved more than $800 per car from the previous design. With these vehicles, the sheriff’s office hoped to reflect the pristine, lush and beautiful environment of Marion County.
JUDGES COMMENTS: The big, bold block letters are sharp and effective, and the outlined style of the lettering is a nice, different look. This is a non-traditional approach to a sheriff’s vehicle with a tactical appeal.
