Baton Rouge police cars are getting a new look.

The Police Department on Wednesday released a photo of an updated vehicle graphic that will appear on the department’s police cars this week.

Police spokesman Cpl. Don Coppola said the previous graphic has been in use since the early 1990s, and Police Chief Carl Dabadie was interested in updating the look.

Coppola said there is no cost associated with the change because the department is able to print the graphics in-house and use department staff to apply them to the cars.
