“Blue Line” says these vehicles are often the most public face of policing and should reflect their communities as well as serve as a symbol of civic pride.

The 150 anniversary cruiser, a 2017 Dodge Charger, was unveiled by Windsor police in April 2017.

It has new special features, such as rear tail lamps that read “150 Anniversary” in reflective lettering and custom 150th Anniversary badges are on the dashboard, rear trunk lid, hood and sides.

The front end is all black, resembling police vehicles from the 1930s and 1940s. The hood, roof and trunk are white, similar to cruisers in the 40s through 60s. Other features incorporate designs from the 80s to present day.

The assigned vehicle number is 6744, honouring Senior Const. John Atkinson, who was killed in the line of duty in 2006. Atkinson’s badge is also on both sides of the cruiser.
