Inuvik RCMP ditched the traditional red, yellow and blue branding on their police truck, swapping it for all of the colours of the rainbow.

Police allowed local children to paint the police truck whatever colour they desired at the June 30th Mud Bog race. The result, a dizzying array of pinks, purples, blues, greens and oranges, as well as painted tires and handprints on the windshield.

If you like the new paint job you might be disappointed to learn the paint is washable and the truck will go back to normal after the brief makeover.

The painting fun was organized to launch the Inuvik RCMP’s Chill with the Cops program. A creation of Cst. Stephanie Leduc and Cst. Jenna Moore in collaboration with the Inuvik Youth Centre, the program is aimed at building a relationship between young people in Inuvik and the RCMP. After the launch, police say they want to organize another event every month.
