Thought some of you might find this interesting. It was posted on the AZCGP boards. Pretty cool that the police department is using cars as a legitimate way to grab kids' interest.

police departments have been doing things like this to apeal to younger kids for years. The D.A.R.E Program beefs up various vehicles and gives them a Police makeover and its a big hit with the kids at the shows that they attend.

most (if not all) of the DARE vehicles come from confiscated drug money.
