FAYETTEVILLE - A police department in Fayette County is asking for the public's help in designing a decal for its newest cruiser.
The Fayetteville Police Department recently bought a white 2014 Ford Taurus, but a decal has yet to be placed on it.
Since their logo hasn't been updated in years, police are asking any and all members of the community to design one.
"We're just trying to reach out to the community and have more community involvement," Chief Matt Jeffries told Newswatch. "It's really their police car, so we thought see what they might come up with."
Fayetteville's current colors are yellow and kelly green, and police department patches or town shields are welcome in designs. Two students have already submitted their ideas.
"The prize will be $100 cash and bragging rights to where if you see the cruiser go down the road, you can tell your friends, 'Hey, I designed that,'" Jeffries said.
The contest deadline is Oct. 7. Officers hope to choose a local winner close to that date.
