Indiana University Police Department officers are patrolling the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis campus in new marked cars that sport a new color scheme as well as bigger and bolder identification markings.

The six cars are a specially made police version of a Ford Taurus, called Interceptor. The vehicles are painted white, with “POLICE” spelled out in mostly black lettering. Indiana University is spelled out in red on the side of the patrol cars.

The vehicles’ new look is the only thing that has changed, said Paul Norris, chief of the IU Police Department Indianapolis. “The police department still has the same officers, and they will still be providing the IUPUI community with the same high level of service.”

To report any emergency, crime or suspicious activity, contact IU Police at 317-274-7911.
