Barrie City Councillor Michael Prowse seems to think so.
Barrie Police have added new darker colour schemes to 8 of their marked patrol cars. The scheme will be rolled out as vehicles are replaced over time. It will be several years before all Barrie Police cars have the new darker paint job.
City councillor Michael Prowse says his concerns are based on residents complaining about their lack of visability, as detailed below, courtesy of The Barrie Advance:
“It is, in fact, my understanding … that highly visible police cruisers can help in crime prevention, community relations and providing Barrie residents with a feeling of security and confidence,” Ward 6 Coun. Michael Prowse. “I am concerned that navy cruisers that so easily blend in may not accomplish that.”
