The Oregon police plan to change the colors of its cars from mostly white to black and white.
 
Last month, city council approved the purchase of three Chevrolet Caprice cruisers that will have the new colors.
 
Mayor Mike Seferian said at a recent meeting that road patrol officers took a vote to change the colors on the cruisers. He said that the city would go back to the traditional black cruisers with white decals, including some blue markings, as the fleet is updated in the future. Other police departments have also chosen to return to the black and white cruisers, he said.
