Usually both blue and red. However I have never seen a police offer in the US stop a car with only blue lights. I have seen only red lights however. I believe it depends on the violation.

in the front grill of the car is a box, and so is there near the rear window i believe.

those are for displaying a text that tells you to stop your vehicle.

might not be exactly true but that is what i have seen when i was in USA and we have them in the Netherlands aswell like that.

'Police always use a red light, sometimes in combination with blue light, when attempting to pull you over' Wikipedia.

In the USA in varies by municipality. Before I moved to Israel I was a first responding EMT and my vehicle had red and white lights. Since then blue has been introduced for rear facing only LEDS for police and EMS. In Israel regular police are blue only, Highway Patrol and Military police red and blue, EMS and Fire department red only.

dont make this confusing. whatever lights they use, they all mean the same thing. if its flashing in front of you, slow down and prepare to stop. flashing behind you then slow down, move over, and if he/she is still behind you then pull over and stop.
