  • When I first did vehicle patrol, it was in a White Ford Exploder(er, Explorer) with Setec Courtesy Patrol on the doors in dark blue, and an all blue lightbar. Later on, at the Galleria, it was an Escape, and a golf cart. The last patrol vehicle was an Escape as well, with a Whelen 9000 8-head light bar, all blue, with takedowns and alleys. We also had a Whelen full function siren with p.a. function. This was for a high-end retail facility that covered 30 acres.
    You can partially see an example of one of the Explorers here....

    • GCMC Security Part 2 - Many moons ago I worked for NASA Security and was assigned a marked vehicle. This was a very used vehicle and had a number of safety related problems. I was required to drive this vehicle daily on and off the installation. After unsuccessfully trying to get the NASA motor pool to fix, the problems I was traveling off post one day and flagged down a police officer who agreed to inspect and give me a 72-hour violation notice to get the repairs done. It worked - NASA provided me with a new vehicle. They junked the 1965 Plymouth Fury. It's now probably a part of one of the Space Shuttles.

              When I worked for them Skylab was being developed and tested at the facility I worked out of. It was a fantastic place to work - never a dull moment.

                • That's becoming more popular. Some police departments have moved to that as a cost saving move when buying patrol cars.

                    Curtis when I was in the inspection business, things were so bad, signs were posted in military vehicles, "Not to be driven off the base for any reason."
                    In lieu of brake pedals in some vehicles, towels were to be used to be remove moisture from the operator's feet.
                    Not getting done, I passed this tidbit to the TIG and sat back to watch the fur fly.

                    • Well, the regular patrol van is out of the shop.
                      Here's a photo of it I took this week -

                      A Dodge minivan with, of course, no markings to tell anyone it's a security partol vehicle making rounds in the plant. Actually, it's in better condition than just about anything else in the plant. It was bought for use by the Human Resources department for hauling around VIPs and visitors when the place was up for sale. Though we use it for security patrols, it's still referred to as the Human Resorces or HR van.

                              A few more (the one on the far right is the new decal job, the one next to it and in the 1st pic are the old layouts).

                              • We just got an upgrade to a brand new 2007 Chevy Colorado Pickup with lined bed and a big tool box. Before that we had a burgundy Buick Century which always overheated even in the winter time.
