COLORADO - The Colorado State Patrol has always taken pride in the vehicles they use to ensure safety, and now they are asking for help in showing them off across the country. Each year the American Association of State Troopers (AAST), holds the "Best Looking Cruiser" contest, setting the stage for a friendly competition between the 50 state police agencies to see who will land on a calendar for the following year. Voting began yesterday August 8, 2022, and goes through Thursday, August 25, 2022, at 3 PM.
"Our vehicles are our offices. They're distinct, unique, and embody what it means to be in Colorado by being both rugged and beautiful," says Colonel Matthew C, Packard, Chief of the Colorado State Patrol.
This year’s contest will be tabulated through the SurveyMonkey website. Voting is open to the public and we are hoping Coloradoans will cast their vote in the “2022 Best Looking Cruiser Contest.” You can access the website link to cast your vote by going to https://www.surveymonkey.co
The winner will be presented with the "Best Looking Cruiser Award" and featured on the cover of the AAST's 2022 wall calendar; the next top competitors will be selected for individual months inside. The calendar will be available for sale at statetroopers.org after printing for $10. Sales benefit educational scholarships to dependents of member troopers.
