What City/Town has the best looking Police Cars

I was looking through some of the other threads and noticed some of the pictures included Police Cars. Some looked pretty bad-ass and some just looked dated and didn't stand out at all.

I think it would be cool to see some pictures of the cars from where you live. Whether they are cool or nasty looking.

I'll start with one of my favorites from a town near me. Truro N.S.

Id say the RCMP have the best liveries in Canada, none of them compare with police cars and other emergency vehicles across the pond though. We tend to stick closely with what they have south of the border which generally means tacky looking vehicles.

In St. John's, the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary uses Dodge Chargers. (I think that's the name of the car).

EDIT: And the best pic I could find:

And one more...

Not fond of the 'rainbow' livery, but I loved the old Blue and whites:

Is this coming back? I found some pics of newer cars with the Bl&W...

Wow! That looks great. Not bad for a restored model. I don't suppose this is in service anywhere is it?

Looking at the flickr page, this shot was taken in Regina, so I would imagine the car is on display at RCMP Heritage Centre...

Vancouver is similar to Quebec City, but we do have some black and white which I like better. The Dodge Charger looks too roided out.

Cruiser:



Stealth mode :



The logo only appears in certain lighting conditions.

Chunky colours are better than stripes. RCMP cruisers are ugly.
