This is absolutely, completely unrelated to the article.. but what's up with the new black-and-white paint scheme for a handful of CHPD cars, and are they planning to repaint the whole department's cars or just use the new paint scheme as they replace the aging Crown Vics? :)

Yes, it's the standard look for the Chargers they're getting to replace the Crown Vics - started rolling out last summer, and you'll probably see more through the department's fleet replacement plan, since the Crown Vics are out of production now.
