7/31/14 – On July 29, 2014, the Fort Walton Beach Police Department unveiled one of eight new vehicles that have been approved for purchase by the City Council.  A change in direction is noticeably reflected in not only the model of the new vehicles, but also in the design.  A longtime staple in the law enforcement community, the now retired Ford Crown Victoria has been replaced by the sleeker new Interceptor model.

As for the graphic design, the City has a talented group of in-house volunteers to thank.  Chaired by Police Sergeant Steve Hull, the volunteer committee eventually agreed on a popular design featuring a fresh take on the City’s classic logo and color scheme.  The design was submitted by the police department’s own Corporal Travis Sailor.  Residents may soon be spotting the four utility vehicles and four sedans on a city street near you!
