DPD Calling on Artists to ‘Wrap our Ride’ – A Seized 2009 Cadillac Escalade

Release Date/Time: March 2, 2017 12:26pm
Incident Date/Time: March 02, 2017

Delta Police are looking to recruit local artists in our community to submit their most creative design to help the department customize its recently acquired 2009 Cadillac Escalade.

The Delta Police have been granted a 2009 Cadillac Escalade through the provincial government’s Civil Forfeiture Program. A program that continues to undermine the profit motive behind gang and criminal activity by taking away these proceeds of crime from the criminal element.

The Delta Police will incorporate the Escalade into its Operational Support Section. It will be taken to various community and youth events to drive home the message that crime doesn’t pay. We want to encourage a conversation around making positive choices and connections in the community as opposed to going into a life of crime which will only snuff out the potential of everyone involved in it.

Delta Police believe it is important to engage and collaborate with young people utilizing their skills and talents to develop the design and message on this vehicle.   The Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit (CFSEU) is also supporting this initiative and artists submitting designs are asked to incorporate the phrase “End Gang Life” in the design or leave space for it to be incorporated on the vehicle.

“There are some very talented young people out there and who better to craft the design for the vehicle than those we are trying to reach.” Says Chief Neil Dubord.

Anyone within Delta ages 12-24 years old is invited to participate in the “Wrap our Ride” contest and submit your design. The Contest runs from March 03 – March 31, 2017. Put your creativity to work. The winning design will be selected as the vehicle wrap and the artist will have their signature on the vehicle signifying credit for their work.
