Crown Point Police Department Brings Back Adopt a Car Program

The Crown Point Police Department is bringing back its Adopt a Car

Started in 1995, the Crown Point Police Department Adopt a Car Program began to help offset the cost of equipping squad cars with necessary emergency equipment, including light bars, radios, video equipment and more.

The program allows local businesses to have their business name placed on the rear bumper of a marked squad car for four years. Participating businesses also will receive a customized plaque with a color photo of their sponsored police car, logo placement on all National Night Out event promotion materials and a social media spotlight.

To participate, businesses are asked to make a one-time donation of $2,000. At this time, the department has four eligible squad cars for the program.

“This program allows local businesses to show their support for our officers while receiving visibility in Crown Point and Northwest Indiana,” Crown Point Police Chief Ryan Patrick said.“Our department would not be successful without the support of our community and partnerships with local businesses.”

Those who are interested in participating can fill out an online form at, or call the Police Department at 219-662-3247.
