toronto new police cars

Not everyone is happy with Toronto's new police cars

Back in September, Toronto got new police cars. Chief of Police Mark Saunders revealed this revamp in a video posted to Twitter. The cars went from red, white and blue to a monochromatic grey, black and white colour scheme.

As CBC reports, Chief Saunders made the decision to switch up the cars. "There was just a moment when I did it, there was no deep thought in it," he told Metro Morning earlier today.

Some of the city's police cars were old and needed to be replaced, writes the Toronto Star. Saunders landed on a new look for these Ford Interceptors instead of keeping them the same. While the civilian police oversight board asked Saunders to explain his decision, he didn't need to consult them before making this change.

Some say the new cars look too much like the Toronto Police Service's stealth cars, but Saunders maintains that the new vehicles are highly visible on city streets.

Here's how some Torontonians are responding the new grey police cars:
