The Collier County Sheriff’s Office has unveiled new discreet patrol vehicles for traffic patrols. These “ghost cruisers” have more subdued markings than regular patrol vehicles, with the idea that they will be less noticeable and give deputies greater ability to observe without being noticed. The top light bar has a low profile, and side markings will be illuminated when hit by light.

Still, it’s not as impressive as the undercover mustang the Lee County Sheriff has. Actually, it’s not impressively stealthy. Some unmarked vehicles have their emergency lights inside or under the vehicle, and the cage in the front of the vehicle demands attention. Regardless, drive safe: big brother is watching.
