Lögreglan Hyunadai policecar Iceland.
In Iceland police vehicles are white with blue-lettered marking "Lögreglan" which is Icelandic for Police. The cars also have blue and red stripes with the Icelandic police star overlaying the stripes on the front doors. Until few years ago the red stripe was thinner and was black, probably what was left of the time when the whole bottom half of the police cars were black, and that probably what was left of the time when the police cars were all black. In recent times blue and yellow angular stripes on the sides of the cars have also been applied. All markings are of reflective material. Today the emergency lights are all blue, but seem to have been at least sometimes all red in the past.
The National Police Commissioner owns all of the vehicles that are being used by the police districts around the country. The police districts then rent them from the National Police Commissioner. The Volvo S80 is the most commonly used patrol vehicle in Iceland. Víkingasveitin uses the Volvo XC70 as well as other unmarked vehicles that have been modified for tactical operations.
