I live in Speedway, and although I see these cruisers all the time, I don’t pay a lot of attention to them. About an hour ago, as I returned from a visit to my dentist, I passed the Speedway Police station. Two patrol cars pulled out from the station and headed south—the same direction I traveled. I didn’t think about it because these are the good guys. They’re MY local law enforcement team, and I’m always happy to see them in our neighborhood. Then I realized—those vehicle decals look really good.

The cars are easy to recognize, distinguishable from other law enforcement agencies, and they project a strong image. The design is deceptively simple and effective, with colors fading from black to white, a block font in all caps, and very little else.

The Town of Speedway was established in 1926. Law enforcement was through a Town Marshal system until 1968 when a Metropolitan Police Department was formed. The Speedway Police department is staffed with investigative and uniformed personnel, which includes SWAT, DARE, K-9, bicycle, and motorcycle units.
