What car do police drive where you're from /int/?
SA High Vis cars look pretty cool
And the normal cruisers got updated to this model too actually, I forgot.
Austin police drive Crown Vics, Ford explorers, BMW motorcycles, and Horses.
Also off road bikes.
Not sure about other states but these are pretty common, particularly in regional WA (but also the city)
These are probably the most common now
There's some variant for military police though.
Holden Commodore, same as Australia
Mostly the 2wd ones here in NSW, though the 4wd ones are pretty common once you get out in the bush. Some of them get tricked up with some pretty nice gear too like winches, proper suspension, lockers, long range radios and stuff.
One from military police
Here you can see my city's police making good use of their vehicle.
And one from National police.
I think they're hot ;_;
Here's one with the actual police shit on it
They used to drive Crown Vics but now they all drive Chargers.
They are in love with this model, just this week the news tell carabineros buy near 500 more.
It varies by force, but Vauxhall Astras are probably most common, followed by ford focuses and mondeos, as well as Volvo estates and Land Rover discos.
Motorway interceptors are a mix of BMWs, Jags, Subarus, Audis and Mitsubushis
If Aussie police managed to make their antennae as inconspicuous as this their undercover cruisers might actually become undercover. Although maybe it's to compensate for potentially having to communicate in the outback as opposed to somewhere like LA
Shit is a police car, thing can't be cute.
These seem to be the main replacements for the Crown Vics, though some of the smaller police forces (bridge cops, levee cops, etc.) use different cars.
Top kek m8. Undercover cars are easy as hell for any driver with half a brain to spot. Here they almost always will drive around in a heavily (almost 0%) tinted car on steelies. What gives them away are the rear lights which are RIGHT up against rear windshield, so if you see a dark tinted domestic car with a gray bulb on both sides of the rear mirror, you can almost be assured it's an undercover.
The most convincing UCs I've ever seen are the ones that ride around in those newer Ford SUVs. Crown Vics and Impalas are just obvious.
Do the cops over there make good use of Holden cars?
They're slowly making a comeback - mainly for highway patrol.
Now that the Chargers are beginning to age, like all modern Dodge vehicles they're pretty much falling apart left and right. A lot of Crown Vics are left over and can be bought for dirt cheap as opposed to wasting time and money fixing the Chargers.
The Crown Vics are definitely on the slow and bulky side, but their insane durability and cheap cost of repairs make them something to always expect.
In Australia, or SA at least, and undercover car is just a cop car without the decals. I shit you not it would look exactly like the OP pic if the car was just white, antennae and all.
Although a few friends of mine got busted smoking weed in their car by an undercover Holden Commodore station wagon that had a ladder on the roof to look like a tradie. Apparently every now and then they get a stroke of genius.
They see some use. Funnily enough most of the people being pulled over on the freeway are people in HSVs
>Do the cops over there make good use of Holden cars?
Mostly for highway patrol, the 6 and 6.2L V8's have long legs
The XR6 is also a big of a weapon, very fast... and you won't see it until its too late with the unmarked ones.
Have seen them in QLD. We don't have them in Vic.
We do have these as unmarked.
>AN unmarked police car with “My Family” stickers has sparked outrage and gone viral on social media after it was photographed twice this week in Surfers Paradise
>"“There is nothing to stop overenthusiastic police adding extra disguises to their cars.
It is left to their discretion.” - Senior Sergeant Bradyn Murphy
Boy had to pay a fine, his gf got off because apparently they either fucked up or couldn't be fucked chasing up with the processing. I imagine teens smoking weed in a parked car isn't too high on their priority lists. Would've been a different story if they'd been caught pulling out on to the road or something.
If there was a situation serious enough to legitimately warrant the use of that couldn't the national guard just be called in instead?
They actually do patrol in these expensive cars, but mainly the tourist areas
They usually just patrol in 4x4s and Toyota/Nissan cars.
That's the East, which is a fucking shithole.
Rural BC, Rocky mountains reporting in.
>The police in Dubai has long been accused of brutality including the practice of torture leading to serious injury as well as death. In 2011 British tourist Lee Bradley Brown was arrested by the Dubai police and died in prison after succumbing to injuries
They basically all look like that. Most have cages in the back for cougars and shit they catch though. They don't enforce traffic laws or really do cop shit in my town, they just tranquilize threats, like bears and stuff.
That's just ridiculous, you'd need like a SWAT truck or two max and that's if you're dealing with major gangs with AKs
I mean like siege type situations, like that one time
Yeah but tourists get lost in the mountains, body recovery is some mentally scarring stuff. This isn't most of Canada, I just live in buttfuck nowhere, the only town in the South where snowmobiles are a normal form of in town travel. And animals everywhere, you always see people chasing elk and moose out of their yards with sticks and guns.
Pretty bad ass looking
I've never seen one like it, the decals on all of them in my area are boring. And boring is fine, but these are boring and they attempt to be cool and flashy. Just looks cluttered. The minimalist design on yours is great.
>I mean like siege type situations, like that one time
Pretty much if you want them dead, which technically 'isn't' what the police are supposed to do.
You'll get a multipoint breach, anyone running around with a gun gets dead, anyone standing longer than 2 fucking seconds after you tell them to get down, is also dead. Then everyone in there gets a right kicking while someone stands on their throat so they don't make problems.
We sort of do things a bit differently in the military :)
>Yeah but tourists get lost in the mountains, body recovery is some mentally scarring stuff.
Yeah I've done some body recovery when I was in the SES (volunteer rescue), its pretty nasty.
Its funny, I was raised thinking that getting lost in the hills is the most dangerous thing out there. Lived in Germany for a year, and talked with people that thought they had "lush forests" and could not imagine anything big enough to get truly lost in. No disrespect to them, but it made me understand how easily this shit happens with tourists. Not you Aussies, you know your shit, but the rest of them.
Oh we've got our share of dumbasses that wander around in a pair of thongs, shorts, no water and get lost like fucking idiots. Mostly city folks though that just dunno what the hell they're doing and people who should know better and don't or take unnecessary risks when hiking around.
Lot of people make note of the obvious hazards like bitey animals, but exposure, falls and dehydration kills most of them.
Exactly. I have a lot of friends from Central America. Their stories about rich tourists coming to see "The beautiful god given rainforests" without realizing how terrifying and dangerous the forests and the animals are are hilarious. There's a reason the locals never leave the settlements.
The police department bought these about 4 years ago.
>There's a reason the locals never leave the settlements.
Kind of like how most locals in remote places stay put... because its fucking terrible out there!
I blame numbnuts like Bear Grylls who does all this running around jumping out of trees, climbing waterfalls and swimming across stupid-fast running rivers. People don't realise that if they fuck up (and they probably WILL fuck it up), then they're going to stay there until they die because they broke a leg, drown, have some horrible diarrhoea or landed on their head and are now in the shit.
Paзвe их нe oтcтaвили oт paбoты в нaчaлe 2000х?
Typical police car which takes you to the police station after you beat your wife and kid while being drunk
and unmarked highway patrol, almost lost my driver's licence to these shitheads
Mostly these Volvos
We also have VW Tiguan and Renault Laguna.
>fueled by jizz you mean
>tfw you're going along at a steady 85 mph and some nonce in a rs 2 or something blasts past at well over 100
>beemer a few cars behind suddenly accelerates and goes off after him
christ those interceptors are fast, good job that idiot was around or i'd probably be fucked too, the road had just opened up and i was about to up it to 90+
our local ones have been using suburbans for the last few years, seen a few Yukons and Chargers on the highways.
>talking shit about the Crown Victoria
>hating an indistructible V8 RWD barge that could be had for only $24,000
Like 90% of crime in Finland is people being too drunk so this is perfect car to drive them to police station/home
I wish they sold the Crown here. Or the Mark X.
Er... They don't.
Unless they bought own car, weapon, police clothes and survived the month.
More pictures because words won't point the true
2 small 4 me
That car its broken
That's better, does it work whit pedals?
