were introduced in 2003 for all new vehicles put into service. Same door
badge used since 1999, now with new diagonal stripes only on the front
door. Some older units that were sent in for repairs or re-furbishing where
re-marked in the new markings.
In 1999 a new door
decal was introduced, a blue badge that closely resembled the gold door
badge used in the 1960's and 1970's.
For 1994, a new
set of striping for the departments vehicles was introduced in 2004, with
a smaller version of the earlier round door decal.
In 1986, the Philadelphia
Police switched, as many police departments across the US did at the time,
to all white cars in order to save money. A new, more modern round door
decal, matching the new department patch, was also introduced.
