05/29/13 125 W, 2 I - + 7 - 9 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police SWAT/Bomb Response Unit

Came across this tonight via web searching. Spartan/Hackney SWAT/bomb squad unit, delivered to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department a couple years ago. Maybe a 2011 model? The 20-foot body has a walk-through passage from the cab to the body. The truck's equipped with a 15-kw diesel generator, that can power AC, heating, interior lights, flood lights, and work stations. Roll-up door in rear accesses the robot garage. Ramp provided for deployment. Pneumatic tower with R-vision camera. Chassis is designed with a shorter wheelbase, to help with maneuverability. And that's a blue and white Roto-Ray on the front! Visit this Hackney page for more details, photos, and drawings.

What do cops and firefighters have in common? They both wanted to be firefighters as a kid!

This truck is currently kept at Charlotte Fire Station 35. CMPD also has a smaller IHC 4900/Hackney but I do not know where it is stored, possibly at the academy.
