    And, as mentioned in a recent post, Yonkers also has both red & blue lights on their police vehicles. It may be the "rule" that police must use red lights in NY, but maybe it doesn't forbid the use of blue.

    I live in VA, where it is required that all police vehicles use blue lights. However, some agencies use blue & red or blue & clear. Conversely, fire/EMS can use red or red & clear - but only law enforcement can use blue in the commonwealth.

    Okay, here is a link to Westchester County, NY. The Charger has LED lights, so nobody knows what color they are by looking at the photo; but the Crown Vic clearly has at least one blue strobe flasher inside the clear light bar dome - and it is visible to the front & rear.

    the "red/blue, red/red combination in new york" debate is just as extensive as the "flashing combination of california highway patrol rear deck light" debate. this photograph clearly shows a police car in the state of new york with red and blue lightbar domes.

    "at the time the photo was taken, yes, NYS Law only allows red and white lights for police vehicles."

    well, at the time the photo was taken the police car obviously has a red/blue lightbar, and according to other people here, they've seen red/blue lights on other police cars in new york, so either the law isn't enforced that tightly, or it doesn't exist.

    can we agree that in some places in new york state you're going to find a police car with blue lights on it?

    I know that red lights are the rule in NY in most places and you almost never see blue lights on PD vehicles. However, West Chester PD and Yonkers PD have both red & blue lights (to the front and the rear on the light bar).

    At the time the photo was taken, yes, NYS Law only allows red and white lights for police vehicles.

    As of 2006, police in NY can use blue, with red and white.
    However, blue lights can only be projected from the rear of the vehicle.

    Arent all LE vehicles in NYS supposed to have red lights only? I know that Garden City, East Hampton Town and the State OMH Police cars also have red/blue instead of the usual all red.
