01/06/13 149 W, 8 I - + 6 - 1 Raleigh Police Special Vehicles

Expanding on this thread from yesterday, a quick search around my fire photos (and their archives) finds the current fleet of Raleigh Police Department special vehicles. Or at least, those encountered by photo boy. Top to bottom, left to right: 200_ Thomas Mobile Command Center; 200_ Thomas Field Operations Command Unit; 200_ Chevrolet/Hackney support vehicle; 200_ Chevrolet Silverado hazardous devices unit and bomb disposal trailer; 200_  Ford/Matthews Specialty Vehicles box truck for the bomb squad; armored response vehicle of unknown make and model (Lenco?); and a Navy surplus tractor used for towing a trailer with barricades. Next question, what are some of the notable former vehicles that have served? Blog 101 recalls a pair of former RFD rescue units over the years. There was also an old armored car, painted very dark blue. Also a dark blue school bus, maybe three-quarters length. What others? Click to enlarge:
