I thought I might show some of you where I work. The car is a Ford Crown Victoria. A friend shot a few pics with his phone and sent them to me.

ATT00057.jpg

The picture does not capture just how crowded this is. It is very difficult to carry a front seat passenger.

ATT00030.jpg

Different view, same car. Between the seats is a console with the light switches, siren box, etc. There is also a shotgun in a stand-up rack, a computer pedestal, computer, modem, radar and antenna, all in the front seat area or on the dash.

We type reports on the computer and submit them wirelessly to the system at the station from anywhere in town. The computer also functions as a mobile terminal, and we can receive calls, communicate with dispatch and other officers, and access NCIC/TCIC, MVD, and DL files with it.

The mobile modem also will allow internet access, but its primary function is data transmission, so it is VERY slow, 19.2 Kbps, so web surfing is frustrating.

ATT00093.jpg

A picture of me at work, sort of.

    Oh, yes, the trunk.

    There isn't room anymore for a spare and jack. That is taken up with the recorder for the camera. It is a computer that takes removeable disks. Also in the trunk is an organizer with a safety vest, spill kit, first aid kit, fire extinguisher, flares, etc.

    We keep spare tires at the station. If someone has a flat, another unit will have to go and get him a spare and jack.

    I've asked several LEO's that have pulled me over for roadside inspections, what make and model their laptop mount is. I've been looking for one to put in my Peterbilt, but the ones I've seen, seem kinda 'flimsy'.
