NYPD cars are getting a new look — in the front and back.

The department began replacing the decals on the front and rear hoods of all of its marked cars last month so that they read "NYPD Police" instead of just "Police."

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly ordered the change after he saw a car marked "Police" driving erratically in December and thought it was from his department, sources told The Post.
