Our sheriffs office has a lifted k10 painted camo with some m/ts on it they use I guess for chasing down bad guys running through the woods where its gets real muddy and for search and rescue. They same office has a 5.0 fox body mustang they got from a drug dealer. Threw some lights and decals on it now they run the streets with it.

We have a Lenco Bearcat. Ive seen tanks, escalades, hummers, mustangs, lowriders, silverado ss's, etc.... Lots of those are seized during drug busts.
The bearcat is an extremely cool vehicle that fits law enforcement perfectly. We also have dirtbikes for certain types of patrol.
The there are ambulances and hose dragger trucks, hehe....
What is a Bearcat?
And what is a hose dragger?
I've been a Park Ranger for a couple years; we only use LEO trucks, pretty basic.
However, I recently started volunteering with S&R. Their equipment is considerably different. We have like a mini ambulance for crashes, couple different boats, one bus for swift water team, one bus for (I forget the technical term since I'm still new) if the radios go down, there is "Mobile command" I think it's called. Couple four wheelers, and a couple "mountain trucks" since we live in a mountainous locale. Basically just trucks with decent tires and cargo beds.
So I'm just learning as I go how people do things.

My county has random "Emergency Response" vehicles. They are painted similar to cop cars but they are usually F250's and they have strobes on the inside of the glass. I think they are government workers (not cops) that help out in low level emergencies. I see them pull people out of ditches and snow banks.
Also, is anyone else seeing the new Ford Explorer as cop cars? They are pretty scary looking when behind you. My county is full of them. They also go the Chevy Caprice as the new sedan.
Is it broken?
