Lubbock-Cooper ISD reveals new 'low-profile' patrol car

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Police in the Lubbock-Cooper School District have a new patrol car, but you might have to look twice to spot it.

The new Dodge Charger features what district police say are low-profile graphics.

Instead of the traditional black and white, this new car is black with grey lettering.

Rick Saldana chief of police for Lubbock-Cooper ISD. He says the new unit will help them with working traffic issues and patrolling parking lots in the evenings.

"By no means are we trying to implement a strategy - an 'I got you' issue," Saldana said. "It's just a matter of allowing the officer the opportunity to have a more low-profile approach to doing their job where low lighting is concerned."

The new car will be used on all Lubbock-Cooper campuses.
