        • When I worked for Vector we had 4 foor Chevy Trackers. Small SUV, but (surprisingly) reliable. Wackenhut, Jeep Liberty, that we never had as it was always in the shop. We did have a DOdge Charger as a rental from enterprise, wassn't very impressed. Allied, we used client vehicles. Started out with Two Ford Escapes, not bad but not great, a bit more reliable than the Liberty. On Occassion we would have a truck from enterprise when a patrol vehicle was in the shop. About a couple of years ago an officer totaled one of the Escapes traveling on a power line road. We ended up getting a new Dodge SUV, which make completely escapes me now...I'll post pics later.

          • The other night, I stopped off at a local 7-11 in the zone I was working. When I pulled in the parking lot, I observed a Wackenhut Officer in a Dodge Nitro. Pretty sharp looking vehicle. I did not see any lights or other electronic equipmemt on or in the vehicle.

              They are just starting to be issued. Talk has it they are looking into the low profile LEDS. Most have (had) the Streethawk or the Arodynic. Personally I would prefer a raise and an office.

                I would agree with you there. As much of a die-hard Mopar man as I am, I've heard almost nothing but bad things about the Nitros...

                And SecurityAussieStyle, do my eyes deceive me, or do I see another security agency using Hyundais?! Apparently my boss isn't alone in his flights of fancy... Course, we're using sedans & SUVs, not the little hatchbacks, but still...

                    Yea. I guess. But after a while. Those bills to buy repellent, anti-sting, alcohol, neosporan for other insect bites, (heating pad for you back after sitting in that damn chair), peroxide, bug lanterns and fly swatters gets old. Not to mention a space heater, extension cords, rain gear, padding for a shaky lawn chair, shelfing sets, new casters for the podium, using you own POV (gas, oil, insurance liability, etc.) a large piece of paneling for wind protection gets expensive. The pay is OK for what it is at the moment. Sure I could use a raise. But at the moment an office or shack like place sure would help.

                    • 2007 Dodge Charger, unmarked but with all the bells & whistles (not shared - take home car). Also use Jeep Cherokees for rougher/construction areas where more ground clearance is needed (Chargers dont look good wearing mud). Will try to get a better photo of it or one of the marked units.
                      GREAT car, great agency, great image

                        Currently, my pathetic company has a few Ford Focuses (one of them being mine), Chevrolet Cavaliers (2003, not th enicer new ones), a Kia Rio that they feel they can keep fixing each week when it dies, and three Toyota Echos. Yes, Echos.
