Police Cars

Recommended Posts

Police Cars have become very interesting to me. While most of our members are in New York, what about those in other states. What kind of police cars does your Department Cruise in?

 

For The NYPD, we use:

 

Ford Crown Victoria's

Dodge Charger's

Ford Fusion's

Chevy Impala's

Toyota Priuses

Ford E-350 Vans (Both Old & New Model)

Chevy Express Vans

Chevy Tahoes

Ford F-550s (Adapted)

Westward Go-4 Interceptor's

Cushman Scooters

 

And well thats really it....what do you guys have in other states? If so, got any pics?

Imo Dodge Charger cop cars look great.

I've seen some in Virginia.

* See Pics Above ^ *

 

Nice Pictures!

 

BTW, can someone explain to me why NYPD Slicktop (Meaning the ones who don't have sirens on the top) cars get regular plates?

Nassau County has mostly Ford Crown Vics, they had Chevy Impalas but they are mostly gone. They are also known to use Chevy Tahoes and Suburbans and Ford Explorers for other departments, as well as Ford Econoline vans

I know Nassau uses the omnipresent Crown Vic, but I think Long Beach has a few Chargers.

 

as far as village police departments:

 

Kensington PD - Dodge Chargers

Great Neck Estates PD - Chargers and Crown Vics

Old Westbury PD - Charger, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Crown Vic

Old Brookville PD - Crown Vic

Glen Cove PD - been a while but if I remember right Crown Vic

 

I know State University Police is Crown Vics and Impalas

i feel bad for the cop who gets stuck with those instead of the good cop cars

 

From what I have been told, there actually not that bad. There still not police cars by any means (not pursuit rated or a police package), but considering some of the other sh!t the NYPD has, not the worst.

 

Here are some of the NYPD vehicles.

The Only 2 CARS that are a police package are the Crown Victoria & The Impala. The Ford Fusion, Nissan Altima & The Toyota Prius are only being used under police by the NYPD.

Apparently, one complaint with the altimas is that they came with regular seats, and sometimes the cops' guns and holsters get stuck in the material as they get out of the car since it curves up at the sides to be more comfortable.

 

Also, I recently saw a new nypd car, i believe it was an altima, that had a special light bar with a rear facing display that would have "police emergency" scroll across it. I thought it looked pretty stupid. Anyone else seen this?

You mean this light bar...

It's a Federal Signal Vision SLR with a Whelen smart arrow messenger board in an edge plus housing.

I think it's still only being tested. It's an ablsoulte waste of money. You can't see the damn thing when driving.

Must have been a fun ride at 50MPH. Did he go by Belt Pkwy or side streets.

I don't know the specifics but it involved the Van Wyck service road and Queens Blvd.
