Police Cruiser Concepts

Recommended Posts

A couple of local communities have incorporated recently and established their own police forces. The cruiser designs have both been pretty meh. Has anyone done any PD vehicle concepts? Just thought it might be fun and entertaining. Here's one of the uninspired designs that motivated this thread. You can't see the whole vehicle but the rest of it is just black.

I've done some, but for my actual job, not just for fun. Vehicle designs are fun and challenging, trying to get the right measurements and the vinyl to fit right, it's always a fun project when we get them.

I've worked on ambulances, EMS first responder vehicles, police cruisers, Crime Stoppers/DARE cars..you name it...I'll try to dig up some photos and concepts.

Some cop cars can look cool. That concept is nice.

But, I could never have a police force as a client. I despise law enforcement (in the suburban area), where there are no real criminals. The ones that are just there to suckle money out of you and harass you for :censored:s and giggles. I also hate college campus police. The ones that are powertrippers. I hate. Now metropolitan police, in say, Baltimore, or D.C., those are real cops and more power to them.

What Suburb is that??? Utopia or Xanadu? :P

I seem to recall someone around here (or it may have been on a NASCAR design site) giving a link to a bunch of different Law Enforcement Vehicles photos...

This Thread has a few nice pictures and a few links to other sites with tons of pictures.

Hear Hear!

NYPD (of which many a cousin is a member) = Real Cops

Up here in the Poconos = Doughnut Patrol

If i were going to mock up a cruiser, though, i'd go with an old-school black and white scheme (which mosr departments seem to be going back to, just looks more... Police-y) and work on a "Police" wordmark, or try to work a shield or city/county seal in there.

I have always thought that would be fun to do, but I have never had the chance. Someday hopefully.

It is tough to beat the Inspector Gadget police car design though.

It's so useful.

You live in Fairfax County, right? Because it doesn't sound like you've met any of the gangs here.

P.S. If the car's a Crown Victoria, it doesn't matter how it's painted. It's a cop car no matter what.

Someone living a few towns over from me recently attempted to deck out out his '07 Ford Mustang to look like the evil cop car from the Transformers movie. Aside from using a run-of-the-mill Mustang over a Saleen (which was the model used in the movie) and the bogus looking lightbar, I'd say it looks pretty good.

Street legal in the town of Las Vegas, New Mexico, folks. B)

I haven't met any of the gangs, and don't plan to, but I know there's an MS 13 scare in Alexandria. But even then that's not Fairfax, close though. But for the general population, it is suburbia.

The city of Dublin, California uses green and white police cruisers as opposed to the run of the mill black on white or blue on white ones.

Haven't posted here in a while, but I'm still semi-lurking. I made these a long while back; some super(police)car concepts.

Amen to that bro. If most colleges are anything like mine, college campus rent-a-cops are scumbags who try to hook up with dorm freshamn during their lunch hour. It's fu*king disgusting.

No. All US Government-sanctioned vehicles are American-made.
