    I thought that was a universal thing. I know purple is for funeral processions in NY, but the V&T law makes no mention of purple lights.

    Purple would be very, very, strange to see. I have never seen purple strobes.
    Have not seen anything in Florida yet. Though the new LED FHP lights do have a slight tint of purple to them at an angle. The Polk County Sheriff Office have new Chevys with these all blue LEDs in-cased in an all clear housing. It looks really weird. But man is it bright!

    Willis-Knighton got some new 06 impalas a while back. badged-up exactly like Shreveport Police, but instead of them saying Shreveport police, it says Willis-Knighton Police. Got a full lightbar,strobes, Code 3 siren, PA system...the works. I'll get a picture up ASAP.

There's one town in particular that had such a large problem with it, that they actually passed a city ordinance making rooftop lightbars illegal to own by any private security provider... And actually allows the LEOs to CONFISCATE the bar if they see one.... Forced all the companies that operate in that area to switch to a slick-top setup.... A little excessive in my opinion, but I can understand where they're coming from.

    the only issues with the purple is at night, sometimes law enforcement will think the lightbar is blue when the bar is off. during the day no problem. 99% of the time we don't have any issues, as long as we don't run any of the lighting on the city streets. we have been running our patrol vehicles this way for 4 years, and now we are starting to see other patrol services in the area going with purple mostly in-house departments.

    one issue that the local police has advised us on and it has nothing to do with my department, is that there is one or two security officers here in Columbus that have been making traffic stops or pulling cars over. this is making the other departments/companies look bad.

    do any of you on this forum have this problem in your area now or in the past?
