Thanks to the generosity of several Pueblo businesses, the Pueblo Police Department fleet includes patrol cars completely repainted to match the popular black-and-white design and new decals sported by more recent additions to the fleet.

Extreme Auto Body, Southwest Motors and D&S Paint Center have teamed up the past several months to repaint beat-up police cruisers that had peeling paint and worn-down looks.
