Toronto police launch survey to help design look of new squad cars

Toronto police have launched an online survey for the public to help design its new squad cars.

April 19, 2017  By The Canadian Press

The move comes six months after Chief Mark Saunders halted a rollout of cruisers with a dark grey design that sparked an outcry from citizens.

Toronto police say they will be replacing more than 700 cars as they reach the end of their life cycles.

Spokeswoman Meaghan Gray says it’s time for a change.

The first question in the survey asks which characteristic readers would most like the new-look cruisers to project.


Answers include professionalism, visibility, community-orientation, authority, forward thinking or reassurance.

The survey can be found here.
