The police department's new patrol car insignia, front, replaces the former phoenix logo with a badge and includes more space for the word "police." The new insignia will be on the eight patrol cars added to the police's fleet this year.

not trying to be selfish, but look at pics a lil closer, the car that is farthest sits low= GREAT control at high speeds, now look at the new one LOL, it looks like a 4x4 lol not good at high speeds at that height. wow nice car though, now get back to work...

No, what you're seeing are two cars with "factory" suspension. One has the ride height of a new car with a fresh suspension. The other "lowered" car is actually just an old police cruiser with a tired, worn-out suspension...

"Great control at high speeds?!?!?" It's a Crown Vic. Better control at high speeds maybe, but I can't imagine anyone calling it a great handling car. I think they are chosen more for the space to seat officers/detainees plus the ability to add the computers and other equipment that officers need. Performance is a distant second.

PD's everywhere prefer the Crown Vics because they are still rear wheel drive. Makes for easier 'curb hopping' if it is necessary during pursuit. Front wheel drive cars tend to drag the transmissions transfer case in such situations, and lead to damage and repairs.

I think they should replace the badge with the Phoenix and leave the rest as it is. Or maybe design the badge so it has the Phoenix in it.

That photo doesn't really get the job done.

I agree. This is a story about a logo that only kind of shows you the logo.
