Wyoming Highway Patrol Unveils Slick Top Vehicles

Written by on February 28, 2017

The Wyoming Highway Patrol has implemented a new pilot program utilizing “slick top” patrol cars in hopes of increasing highway safety across Wyoming.

WHP Colonel Kebin Haller said the lower profile patrol vehicles are not new to law enforcement or other highway patrol agencies throughout the country, adding that this is something that the department has been discussing for the past year and now have the opportunity to pilot such a program.

Although the vehicles are designed to be more subdued, they are still clearly identifiable as WHP patrol vehicles and will be used to help identify distracted driving, impaired driving, and also to increase the WHP’s efforts in areas such as human and contraband trafficking.

The five new vehicles will be patrolling Wyoming with one of the cars headed to each of the five WHP districts across the state.
