    The police officer rolled out

    I am wondering if my sentence is grammatically correct.

    The police officer rolled out the blue-and-white tape around the place where the dead body was lying.

    Is it really blue and white? At least in the US, crime scene tape is yellow with black text.

    Your link does show some blue and white tape.

    I can accept 'rolled out'. It's supplied to the police in a roll.
