The University of Central Florida Police Department is putting the pedal to the metal on hiring new officers.

A new UCF-themed police recruitment cruiser hit the road Monday, Jan. 26. The hope is that the new car—which incorporates UCF landmarks in its design—will attract the attention of rookie and veteran officers who want a career in community policing.

The agency hopes to add about 15 new officers each year over the next several years, and the hiring surge will put more officers out on patrol as UCF’s enrollment continues to increase.

The recruitment car is a 2014 Dodge Charger. Lighting was installed by HG2 Emergency Lighting, and the car wrap was designed by TechnoSigns.

The car is already a prize-winner. It took the 1st place for marked design at the 10th annual Cops ‘N Cars For Kids car show Jan. 24.
