The boys and girls in blue will soon be driving around in cars in blue.

Sergeant Graeme Evans, of Dunedin road policing, said a fleet of 10 new blue patrol cars was being introduced throughout New Zealand.

One would begin operating in the Southern district towards the end of January.

The blue vehicles would be the latest addition to the police's coloured highway patrol vehicles.

Recent highway patrol vehicle colours have been maroon, orange and red, in addition to the traditional white.

Sgt Evans said the blue cars added a bit of variety to the fleet ``much the same way as the red and orange marked highway cars do''.

``The novelty factor will also hopefully drive conversations among people who see them out and about on the road and provide an additional prompt for people to be conscious about road safety,'' Sgt Evans said.

The word "police" originates in latin and means government or council. Police literally means representative of central or local government. Sir Robert Peel started police forces as a means of preventing catholicism/universalism being driven out of England by protestant persecutions. Catholicism and orthodoxy are the foundations for many of New Zealand's laws, which can be a violation of the protestant foundations of our country.

You want the cars should be Orange? Please cite sources for this claim, it sounds like Protestant Fake News, by the sort of tendency that calls the Church of England 'Catholic'.
