WISCONSIN — Wisconsin State Patrol has won a police vehicle design contest for new cruisers.

The exterior design for the Wisconsin State Patrol’s new 2013 Ford cruisers won this year’s International Police Vehicle Design Contest in the Federal and State Agencies Category sponsored by “Law and Order” magazine.

State Patrol currently has 14 of its new cruisers with the award-winning design as a pilot project.

The design has a traditional or “retro” look in honor of the upcoming 75th anniversary of the founding of the State Patrol, which will occur in 2014. Moreover, ample reflective materials in the graphic elements, especially on the rear and sides of the cruisers, increase safety and visibility at night.
