Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.
May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

Now if my memory serves me correctly a long time ago there was an international thing to make all police, fire, and ambulances distinguishable. If someone from another country or an american citizen went to another country they would be able to tell the differance between the various emergency services. The police were blue and red, fire department was red , and the ambulance was red and white. Most police department now use just the blue, guess the international thing went out the window. I'm sure someone from the older era or around the same time era will correct me if I'm wrong."This flag, which we honor and under which we serve, is the emblem of our unity, our power, our thought and purpose as a nation. It has no other character than that which we give it from generation to generation." Woodrow Wilson, 1917

Having been stationed in Hawaii....I will try to add my thoughts.
The Honolulu Police Dept. allows Officers that have 5 years or more on....and are in a Patrol or other positions (I can't remember them all) to purchase their own vehicle (there is a list of what they can and cannot have) and the PD makes payment on the vehicle and pays for the gas and the insurance. The logic being that folks take care of their cars better when they are the only one using it, higher visibility, and that all cars have company installed radios in them and they are (and do) expected to call stuff in if they are out and about off duty.
Nothing like crusing along H-2 and seeing some jackass blow by you at 90.....and being pulled over up the road because they passed an off-duty officer who called it in.......
While on patrol, the Officers keep the single strobe attached to the vehicle and will turn the light on to stay highly visible at night. If they are initiating a traffic stop, they activate it and it flashes.......to get you to pull over.
As for vehicles used.....there are anything from CV's, Impala's, lots of different SUVs, and such. I would suspect that some of them are buying the new Chargers.
When I was stationed out there in the late 80s/early 90s the vehicle of choice was the Olds 442 and the Buick Grand National Monte Carlo SS......

The way its looked at here is that you move over regardless of police or fire so why distinguish?Originally Posted by TXCharlie

True you should move over regardless, I guess that it was some trial and error program. The only benefit I would see is that the criminal element could get a head start upon seeing the lights. Charlie I like that car is it for sale?"This flag, which we honor and under which we serve, is the emblem of our unity, our power, our thought and purpose as a nation.

You wanna a sweet lightbar, check out the OSP cruiser. They got the new LED's and those things can blind you from a mile away.

Ya, I don't know if I would want to have a cruiser with them or not. They not only blind you but they kind of disorient you when you are coming up on them. OSP has enough people ramming into their cruisers, just check there web page.
