We have a usual assortment of Crown Vics, Chargers and Tahoes for our Local PD. They have a few unmarked F150's, Rams, Silverados, Tahoes, Crown Vics and Chargers but it's usually hard to tell if they belong to the local PD or the Sheriffs department. The Sheriffs department recently got a grey Camaro SS, other than that pretty much everything is just your usual unmarked vehicles although they are rather rare. Other than that they also have a Blue 90's Silverado with a headache rack with fake lights with red and blues in them but I haven't seen it for a couple years. Undercover vehicles are a little rare around here, normally you just see a bunch of marked CV's or Tahoes with your occasional motorcycle. The local PD also has some vehicles for what I would guess to be non-patrol officers. I'm sure that they would have had to piss someone off to get stuck with one of them though.

We've been seeing a lot of them since the Sheriffs department has nearly been completely cut and they've taken over what the county used to patrol.

[QUOTE=kart22racer;36036140]That must be fucking terrifying, seeing that beast patrollin' the streets.[/QUOTE] I don't think they even have any lights on them, I think it was a stupid publicity stunt that our town put on to look "green". Most of them are parked and only occasionally see one driving around downtown at a slow pace.
We got crown vics, chargers, impalas, and escapes [img]http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3654/3531684569_f7aa66fb2d.jpg[/img] Black and white is surprisingly intimidating.
can't forget the suburban [IMG]http://farm2.staticflickr.com/1411/4608116772_98de357ffe_b.jpg[/IMG] I actually have thought about being a cop before, maybe like an Aux cop while I'm in college or something.

I'm guessing all these frames on the front of those American police cars are for bumping other cars or something, ours have nothing like that

What's with British cop cars and the florescent tape all over them
So they can see them in the non-stop drizzle.
They should just cover them in blinding lights like we do!
Im pretty sure that they have the reflective tape for the same reason Fire trucks do in the US: To help prevent drunk drivers from hitting them.
[QUOTE=areolop;36045866]Im pretty sure that they have the reflective tape for the same reason Fire trucks do in the US: To help prevent drunk drivers from hitting them.[/QUOTE] I have a feeling that actually distracts the drunk drivers so much, they end up hitting them.
My town is just Crown Vics and one or two Explorers, but I think they used to have a fully equipped Mustang D.A.R.E. car. Hopefully they'll switch to Chargers soon, you have to love Dodge.

This is how the german police cars used to look like: [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/HrvGS.jpg[/IMG] and now [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/6b81E.jpg[/IMG] most common is the passat i've also seen some mercedes around here [thumb]http://i.imgur.com/Swyvu.jpg[/thumb]

Oh Iceland, you so funny. The only country except the Faroe Islands (they also use Lögreglan) I know of where the police doesn't have any "poli" in it's name :v:
New South Wales has some awesome police vehicles.
