LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 2, 2004) -- University of Kentucky Police Department has cruised to a win in a recent police vehicle show and design competition. The 2004 Cruiser Classic was held July 24 in Cynthiana, attracting entries from 25 law enforcement agencies from around Kentucky.

The UK Police Department received first, second and third place awards in the college/university police cruiser division and first and second place awards in the overall police motorcycle division.

UK Police Information Officer Travis Manley created the designs used on the police cars since 2002 and on the new motorcycles acquired earlier this year.

“I'm very proud of this accomplishment for our police department,” said Ken Clevidence, UK associate vice president for campus services. “The excellent placement in this competition validates our opinion that our police car and new motorcycle designs are modern, easy-to-read and attractive graphic designs.”

The 2004 Cruiser Classic was hosted by the Cynthiana Police Explorers Post #714.
