The car won't be used to pick up criminals, but rather recruit potential officers at special events. Staff at Sounds So Good Car Audio, which is on a lane across from Hooverville Elementary School, had few instructions from police beyond keep the car functional, but also "make it flashy and make it showy," Ryan Bryan said.
