The police then take their new 911 to the paint shop, have it dressed in department colors, throw on a wing, light bar, and rear window lights. Voila. A car donated by a criminal now meant to deter – and perhaps catch – other criminals.
Beyond the blue and silver paint job, the car's other decals read "Seized" and "911 Never Forget."
