AKRON -- Changes are coming to the Akron Police Department's vehicles -- and the public can get an up-close look at one of them at Lock 3 this Saturday from 7-10 p.m.
The old white units with blue and gold decals are being traded in for the new l batch of black vehicles with blue and metallic gold lettering.
The new design (pictured above) will be used on the newly purchased Ford Explorer and Ford Taurus vehicles.
The current vehicles in the department's fleet will retain the white with blue and gold stripes until they are replaced with the new vehicles.
The new vehicles should be seen in Akron within the next few months.
