    [quote=Hank1;41694]We use them for the take downs and alley lights. We also use them to locate one another in a emergency situations in low light areas.

    Are on the vehicles like the ones in this picture but green and yellow instead? Or are the colors only visible when the lights are turned on?

    Corporal (After a quiet chat): "Do not tell people this security guard cannot touch people. That's not a law."
    One that note, Hank have you ever had a law enforcement agency to arrest a person you detained because "you are not a cop and cant arrest people"?

    I ran into the same problem you did. A Tampa Police Officer, while issuing a trespass warning for me, asked when we (CIS) went to green / amber light bars. I told him July 1st. He informed me that we (CIS) should not have the green light bars because at night it looks blue. I told him that it was permissable by law and he is entitled to his opinion just like anyone else. I also told him that any security agency, not only CIS can go to green/amber combo if they wish to. To my knowledge, there is only one other agency with the amber/green light bars in the Tampa Bay/ Clearwater area ( I think he thought only CIS had the new lights). He replied that you guys " are not cops"! I rolled my eyes and asked him for my copy of the trepass warning. NOw keep in mind, this conversation (his rant) took place while in the presence of the subject being trespassed. I told the subject to beat feet and thanked the TPD Officer for his "Help".

    How about, in front of the victim of a car theft. "Not another one, we are always coming to the hotel for car thefts".

    We use all Crown Victorias now.We had Impalas but the upkeep on FWD cars is much more then rear wheel drive cars.More so after 100k miles like when we get them.The upkeep for the Crown Vic is overall low and they will last over 200k miles if you take care of it and have it properly serviced.We get them from the police department with over 100k miles on them.The one I am using now is a 98 and has 280k miles on it and it runs great and the A/C is nice and cold in the jungle Miami heat.

    We never tried the Charger mostly due to fact that DCX cars have proved to be troublesome cars in the long run.

    The boss had a rental Charger a few weeks ago and drove it and found it had allot of blind spots and the small windsheild made it hard to see the traffic lights.

    I have a 99 Crown Vic for my personnel car and it has over 200k miles on it and plan on keeping it for awhile.

    I went and looked at some police package Tahoe's today. Man let me tell you how tempting it was to get it. The black with the black rims is just 10-8... so so so so so tempting.

    Probably someone hoping to make some felony impersonation stops and up his felony arrest quota, then getting mad because every time he blinds the driver/lights up the car with the spot, its green.

    Typical blue line reacting over green.

    At first glanc, they did look red and blue. I hope nobody's going to complain, but even if they do, it'll take at least 2 years to change the law back.

    Its also heartwarming to see a G4S branch actually order a green cover, even if it is for an ancient Streethawk.

    Our company has Chevy Impalas which are slowly being replaced with Dodge Chargers. Some areas have led light bars on the cars. At the mines we use Dodge Ram crew cab pickups with red/blue light bars.
    Here in the hinterlands, I have a Chevy Impala with 160,000 on it. I'll be getting a hand-me-down Charger next year, maybe.
    I'm looking at an Impala, but can't stop thinking about getting a charger. However, i'll most likely will end up with the Impala.
