  • Patrol vehicle - What's in it?

    I know we've talked about lighting, radios, etc.. but i'm curious as to what you have in your patrol vehicle. Is it certain things required, or optional?

    I have the following in my unmarked vic...

    First-Aid kit (required)
    Range bag (optional of course)
    12 - traffic cones (optional)
    "Danger" line tape (required)
    "Caution" line tape (required)
    Fire extinguisher (required)
    3-day supply of food and water (optional)
    Rain pants and jacket
    Toolbox
    Windbreaker jacket
    15' of rope

    I know I am missing something.. but thats pretty much what I have at all times.

    spare batteries, flashlight, maybe a small roll of duct tape couldn't hurt.

    I have a go bag that has quite a number of things in it, spare torch, phone charger, tape, nylon cord, space blanket, batteries, dry soup/beverage powder. spare mag, extra socks & undies (this IS Houston I'm talking about), waterproof map, maybe a bit of light reading.

      Forms
      Caution Tape
      Extinguishers (ABC and Water)
      Lock-out tools
      Jump-pack
      First Aid kit

      Our vehicles are in sad shape. Neither have lights at this time.

          The logbook.

          And that's it.

          I've asked for a simple first aid kit, but got the runaround. I've also asked them to repair some more serious mechanical issues with the car for over a month now, but they keep delaying it. Yeah, it's all documented.

                  well...

                  No issued patrol vehicle at this time, but my humble little '91 Ranger is nicely equipped for most anything.

                  In the cab:
                  Me
                  Paperwork (in a file that I mounted in the back seat area)
                  At least 10 cheap flashlights (I got most of them for free and keep them around for emergency response-type instances. Those from TEXAS know how fast the weather can go to hell. Handed out many of them this year when the weather got really bad over the summer and we had multiple power outages on sites I was working while they were still occupied)
                  A whole crapload of spare batteries (old tacklebox full of all sizes)
                  Custom First aid kit (again, old tacklebox full of neat stuff)
                  Spotlights
                  Power inverter
                  Laptop
                  TV
                  DVD player
                  Thermoelectric cooler
                  Bug spray
                  Cooking utensils (I do alot of static posts in BFE)
                  Some kind of food, usually soup, etc.
                  Extra boots, socks, drawers, undershirt
                  Deoderant, Toothbrush, Axe body spray
                  Gun box with OC spray, baton, Leatherman, pocketknife, etc. inside
                  Extra ammo
                  Duty weapon
                  Radio
                  Cheap 2-way radios (No one likes extraneous chatter on the company radios when two guards are communicating across site. These work great)

                  In the bed:
                  Tool box (used to be a mechanic, can fix most anything roadside)
                  Vehicle fluids
                  Jumper Cables
                  Gas Grill
                  Rain suits (in tool box, always carry more than 1)
                  Rain Boots
                  Folding chair
                  Ice chest
                  AT LEAST 2 gallons of potable water

                  I porbably forgot something. Before they start...this is a TRUCK, I have bed space and would carry most of what is in there regardless of profession. Boy Scouts taught me well.

                    I don't see body bags. In LE we had body bags in the trunk.

                        well

                        I think I might have some duct tape and a tarp. Would that constitute a body bag?

                          Good lord, you remind me of a guy I use to work security with back in '99. That old guy had a van, with everything you could think of..even a hot plate.

                            I have 3104 miles on it already. After a guy T-boned me and my '06 while on duty, I was given a brand spanking new squad!

                              1. you don't have to call me good lord, doug will suffice :-)
                              2. I actually am looking for a hot plate. See, I work out in BFE alot. I mean 20 miles to the nearest gas station at times. If I am there for 16 hrs/day, I like to be prepared.
