Finishing touches uid interior gear are being installed on the seven white Dedge Diplomats, which sport green and blue "Sea- hawk stripes" to "make them more eye-catching so citizens know we're armmd," said Deputy Chief Pen Green. "Each time I pick up a motorist, I get that inexpfieable urge to go out for a pass," joked patrolman James Goodman. Two of the new cars are being used now for patrol, and the rest should be finished within two weeks, said Director of Public Safety Jan Deveny. The new vehi- cles, marked "PUBLIC SAFE- TY," will not wear the "ash- eater" cannisters that had been installed on the previous patrol- cars in July, 1980, in anticipation of ashfall from Mt. St. Helens. "We won't install the air filters on the new cars, but we have the mounts on the bumpers and if an emergency arises, they can be in- stalled in a matter of 15 minutes," said Deveny. The city spent $3,500 for the 12 units. The seven public safety vehicles cost f ,000, and will replace the two-year-old blue Chevrolet Novas and Dodge Aspens. 1-90 collision kills Islander Wayne E+ Bussey, 38.
