The Noblesville Police Department bought nine 2008 Ford Crown Victorias for an estimated cost of $189,900. The vehicles are all black and instead of paying to produce and apply decals with the department’s insignia and “Police” on the doors on both sides, the car doors are being wrapped. The background is white, giving the cars the appearance of being black and white. That can add to the cars’ resale value and make them easier to decommission when the department is done with them.
