FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Police cars in North Dakota's largest city have a new logo.

An in-house committee at the Fargo Police Department came up with the emblem after several months of study. The new design says "FARGO POLICE" in a black font with white edges. Below it, in a smaller, script-like font, it states, "Sworn to Protect. Dedicated to Serve."

It replaces a light blue font that featured a lightning-bolt-like blue and gray design.

Officials say the bolder logo was created in concert with the addition of new sports utility vehicles. The department will have seven of the Ford Police Interceptor Utility vehicles by this fall.

Deputy Police Chief Pat Claus tells the Forum newspaper it was "time for a change."
