Some Wilmington council members aren’t pleased with a proposal to change the design of the city’s police cars.

On Tuesday, the city council will consider a resolution to approve buying 22 new Dodge Chargers for the police department. Police planned for the cars to be the first wave of cruisers styled in a new black-and-white design.

The design features a black hood and trunk with white doors emblazoned with POLICE in all capital letters and an image of a police shield. The latest design departs from the WPD’s current marked cruisers, which are painted all white and have blue and gold stripes.

At a Monday agenda briefing, Councilwoman Laura Padgett said the new cars look “very intimidating.”
