New Richmond Police Department officers are now patrolling the city in two new squad cars with newly designed graphics.

The black-and-white Dodge Durango SUVs sport a blue stripe on each side with the department patch, New Richmond Police in all capital letters and the phrase “Serving since 1885.”

Officers Tony Milliron, Jake Sather and Aaron Anderson worked on the design, which was among eight that were initially considered. Officers voted on the top two, according to New Richmond Police Chief Mark Samelstad. He said 1885 is the year that the New Richmond Police Department was established and that officers researched the date.

The department still has two older all-white Dodge Durangos in service with the old graphics.
