The 545th Military Police Company has seen action in a variety of places. Some of this history is captured in a “Pictorial History of Vehicles” page they’ve assembled. Naturally, there is a section on jeeps. Below are a few of the photos. See all the photos here: http://www.545thmpassn.com/Vehicles.htm

This 1949 color photo shows the yellow and black paint scheme:

This jeep was utilized exclusively to escort VIPs’ and General Officers at Camp Drake Note the abundance of red lights and the siren

This photo shows a good view of the black striped hood:
