Does every other place in the world call 999 except us? I noticed one of those cop cars in the first video says police 999 on the side of it. And I'm pretty sure that in England when you need to call 911 you call 999.

It was difficult at best to fit all the electronic devices as well as the officers equipment into a full size SUV let alone one of those. What a difference from when I started

In my community our most exotic police car is a five year old Charge Dodger that was seized in a drug raid.  It's well maintained and is used on daily duties on our streets.....and as a PR machine at many special events.

 

The Yavapai Apache tribal police has a few Ford and Mercury sedans that are no longer being built.

Whenever I see lights like that, I think of the opening sequence of “Police Squad” and “Naked Gun” movies. ^_^

Vintage goodness. :)

The Ford Crown Vic was the finest police car ever!  Shame they’re no longer made. Officers are crammed into midsize sedans and SUVs now with computer monitors, electronics systems, etc. :(

In my last six years I was assigned the Crown Vic executive edition that had been the chiefs car. I loved that car and hated to turn it in

One of the tribal cops bought a Gran Marquis (Mercury version of the Crown Vic.) for himself.  It's registered in his name, but wears the department colors and they provide maintenance and fuel for it.  Says he never wants to be without one.

Interesting. Anyone else find it odd that they need police cars in a country that has no crime and everything is wonderful and perfect?

The roads in the Gulf, from city to city, are straight lines and it's not unusual to see high velocity cars like Ferraris and Bugattis tooling along at 120 miles +.   You can't stop them if you can't catch them, although stopping them doesn't always result in anything serious, usually a ticket, unless you're a foreigner then things can get serious.   In the "old days" one kept "bail" money in the vehicle to pay the "fine" on the spot.  Jail out there is not nice, no matter what the videos show.

I remember back in the early 1970's Scottsdale, Arizona, had Bricklin Police Cars.  They were weird because if one was behind you all you could see was the gumball machine light in your rearview mirror.  If it was lit you were in trouble.

No. They just pull over infidels and any women foolish enough to try to drive.

I did a few ride alongs with our local PD. Each time the officers, who were driving Dodge Chargers, extolled the virtues of the Crown Vic.

I worked a prison ministry weekend once with a guy had one of those. He took me for a ride and told me all about it. STRANGE ride. Of course it makes little or no sound, like an electric golf cart. Only certain places to charge it, and it didn't have a real great range. He could walk out to the parking lot and push the key fob and the car would come to him. :blink:

There are almost silent. Kinda scary when you’re close and they are moving ’cause of the lack of noise. Easy to get run over :o Very strange indeed.

I'm probably late to this party, but they have started "ghosting" the police cars around here.  In the day time, you don't know they're cruisers until you're right on top of them.  I'm sure the reflective decals help at night
