River Valley residents may have noticed a differently designed police car patrolling throughout Russellville over the weekend as the Russellville Police Department hit the streets in one of their new patrol units on Friday evening, September 11. The new patrol unit is one of several new patrol vehicles acquired by the department. The new units display a redesigned color scheme that city officials stated, “assists in saving money and helps put the vehicles on the street quicker.”

For a period of time, residents  will continue to see the old black and white patrol units that we all are accustomed to seeing, but you will also see the new black ones as they are completed and begin patrolling.

Many thanks are given to RPD officers for the great job they do in the community. We appreciate you all!
