    we just have yellow light bars up here....i dont see what difference a color would make if you were on private property (ie a private university)

    given the area of responsibility, the fact that we respond to/document/conduct roadside UA/BAT duties for any incident involving company vehicles... I wish all our rigs had lightbars versus some of the rigs with simple commercial single warning strobes.

    Anything that can possibly help keep some shmedlap from running me over if I'm at an incident performing the above, or first responder tasks.. I'm all for it.

    yeah it's just always struck me as odd as to why security companies always think that they need a yellow light bar (or whatever color or design) on their vehicles.

    i dont understand why a private investigator would need yellow and green flashing lights anyway.
    I hold a private investigation and security officer agency license in all 3 states.

    My ideal vehicle outfit is (under VT law), white strobes front and rear (in the HL and TL housings), amber/green dash lights, and amber/green deck lights, with an Arrowstik mounted above the rear windshield...
    Sounds perfect for NH, as well. I'd probably go will all green, tho, with perhaps a single amber section. Personal taste.

    If you aren't certified in Indiana, you are ineligible for an Indiana green light permit.

    My question is a little off-topic, but I felt that this thread was the appropriate place to ask it in. We currently do not have any warning lights on our security vehicle. However, I was recently promoted to security manager where I work and would like to expend some of the budgetary surplus from our prior fiscal year on a lightbar for the truck. However, my question is, does anyone know if a permit is required to have security lights on a vehicle and, if so, how I may go about getting one for my department? I am in New Jersey, if that helps. Thank you.

    I am not sure if some of you are aware of the big crash on I-4 this week in Florida. It was just east of my area. Needless to say it was chaos for a while around here in regards to turning the entire place into a sub station command center and triage area. Approximately 1,500 various personnel from 30 agencies where here. Perhaps more not including contractors. The G4S jeeps ran overheads and dash strobes (green/amber) threw out the day while shuttling back and forth between areas. Unless everybody was too busy to care no one seemed to give it a second thought about it. They would not let us escort our own people in and out (PCSO or FHP did the escorting) but far as running the lights it was no problem.
    You were operating legally within the lights statute thats why they didn't bother you most likely.Public streets are public property and you were in performance of security duties.

    Vehicles owned or leased by private security agencies may show or display green and amber lights, with either color being no greater than 50 percent of the lights displayed, while the security personnel are engaged in security duties on private or public property.
