    Wackenhut in Florida is still issuing the .38 caliber or .357 caliber revolver with .38 Special ammunition. Security recently was authorized to carry 9mm semi-autos without the coveted special waiver.

    Imagine, if you will

    the ugliest shade of yellow on earth, painted on a ragged out fleet of Nissan Frontier pick-ups. All with 5-spd. stick trannies. Also included in this package is the crappy yellow/amber unknown brand lightbar that works when it feels like it (ever heard the one about hell freezing over?) I would rather walk my patrol route...

    Ford Escapes where I'm at. Just about perfect for what we do to be honest; though I do wish that we had a more durable interior.

    Well, the green is a value added service, since people can tell its actually security now.

    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.

    I have to admit I was surprised when I saw them all lined up at the office. Jeeps! And the lights too. We have had compliments from few Troopers on the Jeeps. And the lights too during a few operations on the interstate. They say it's nice to be able to tell the difference between us and a tow truck. As for the law. Who knows maybe they will leave it alone. Oh, yea. I did drop a hint about the new LED look at the division office. I guess we are lucky to have got the green covers and the Jeeps as it is.

    Now. If they would just give us nines, an office and a pension. Oh, yea I know that's pusing it.

    No the Nitros don't have hemis, they are gas hogs, and ours is cursed.

    We had it for less then a month when a drunk chick pulled out of the bar across the parking lot from our office and slammed into it broadside....in reverse....going an estimated 20-30 mph.

    Insurance did not total it. It was in the shop for about 3 months. Day after we get it back, our GM and Ops Manager were going to a client visit and at 2 separate red lights people got out of their vehicles to tell the Ops Manager that the back right wheel was wobbling so bad that it looked like it was going to fall off. So it went back IN the shop for another 2 weeks. We got it back last Friday and whoa and behold we get a recall notice in the mail for some computer problem that apparently will shut the vehicle completely down.

    So Ops Manager schedules to get it fixed tomorrow. Today he goes out to make a sales call and 10 minutes out of the office and gets into an accident with it!

    This is a retired Pennsylvania cop, who has been involved in pursuits, been driving for many years and has never had an accident in his life!

    I tell you that dang thing is cursed! Nope I'll stick with the Ranger.

    BTW Glad to see that you got the Amber/Green lights....bad thing is in the pic they almost look like Red/Blue.

    Two things.

    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.

    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).
