The Tiburon Police Department is getting ready to roll out two all-new vehicles with high-tech additions — including LED message boards and low-frequency sirens you can actually feel. They’ll also kick off the department’s transition to a new look: traditional black and white.


The vehicles, a 2023 all-electric Ford F-150 Lightning Special Service Vehicle purchased in December and a gas 2023 Ford Police Interceptor Utility SUV bought in January, cost about $152,000, including graphics, equipment and design fees.
