Classic Boston Police logo and cruiser
3 Comments on “Classic Boston Police logo and cruiser”
A new design is in order. I am a designer by trade and I think the new design should be a simple, classic American american design – A black body, a white roof. The car number would be large black Garamond type face on the roof so ID is easily viewed from the air. The drivers door and passenger doors would have a large “gold leaf” BPD in Garamond Bold with the old Boston Seal logo centered under done in Gold, Black and White. The vertical surface of the trunk lid would be done in large decal of diagonal stripes of Dayglow Safety Yellow Green as with the London, England cars and the 911 number. All simple and less cost to produce. Respectfully, PJ Collins PS: my grandfather was proudly a Boston Police officer for 40 years.
I actually took that last photo of the Boston cruiser. Can you credit me as the photographer? Thanks.
Credit added. Thanks so much for commenting, Greg!
I really liked the Futura Black font, not just iconic for Boston Police but most all of Boston… EMS, DPW, School Police, Code Enforcement, Boston Signs and Parking Permits all matched with the same font, even some emergency service uniform suppliers I noticed used this font in their business name logo. Not many cities that i recall, if any at all across the U.S. had such a unification with something as simple as a font that grabbed your attention and you knew where you were. Its sad to see BPD break that Boston branding, would love to see them revert back to it.
