I think police cars should not be obvious from a distance. They should only be identifiable from a short distance. If you're up to no good and you see the lovely blue and yellow colors, You're unlikely to stick around.

There are plenty of unmarked cars about, bu generaly they do need to be visable, so they are easily spotted when they are en route to an emergency call...
