LITTLE ROCK â€” The Arkansas State Police has deployed 24 new low-profile vehicles that are designed to blend in with ordinary traffic.
The agency showed off the vehicles at headquarters early Wednesday.
The new cares are equipped the same as a conventional patrol car â€” but come in different colors, do not have the roof-mounted bar light and are marked only on the passenger side with the State Police star and blue stripe.
Each of the 12 troops in the state get two of the vehicles.
Plans are under way for Amplify Christian Music Festival and event coordinators are saying it's going to be big.
Josh Turner, one of the creators of the festival, said "Saline County has never seen an event like this â€” from the size of the production to the well-known artists."
"It's a big deal," he said.
Attendance and parking will be free.
Major artists slated to perform include Shawn McDonald, Matthew West, David Crowder, Josh Wilson and others.
Jennifer Watson will teach creative writing for ages 16 and older at 6 p.m. Thursday at Boswell Library in Bryant. No registration is required. Call 501-847-2166 for more information.
