Don't know if this was due to coincidental timing, but since there is another thread asking for police vehicles, then maybe I shall just reproduce what I typed there here!

"I am not into cars, so I wont noe the technicalities. But what is for sure is that the patrol cars here are literally falling apart!

Will be showing a small range of vehicles I took myself. First off: The Fast Response Car...the main workhorse of the police force, and the one your typical friendly neighbourhood policeman travels in. I did my 2nd duty since commencing my beat duties in this particular vehicle pictures here:

("Serangoon", btw, is the name of the Police Centre (aka police station) I am from)





As can be seen, it is nothing special...just a typical Japanese saloon car which looks like it is going to fall into pieces soon for being way overused then what it is designed for!

But I heard the cars might be replaced across the board. Saw the newer models meant for policing purposes recently in the regional HQ, but I could not identify its make..."

Other then the Patrol car used for regular patrol, there is also the police van, which can also be used for general transport, dispatch, and to send backups to aid the FRCs. I dont have a good photo of one yet, except for this one, which shows the backside of it:



Probably the next most common police vehicle we see on our streets is the Motorbike. There are several models, with some being smaller, for example, for women officers. The mainstay, however, has got to be this one:



Erm....the "rider" is actually my friend pretending to be a traffic cop....the real traffic cops are outfitted in white tops and blue bottoms. This bike was actually on display for a "security awareness exhibition" at my varsity.....see that banner in the background?

The rest of the vehicle types would be for the more specialised departments, or arent generally used for patrolling work:

This vehicle is the Police Land Rover, an almost antique vehicle which was initially phased out, but they decided to give it a new lease of life and reinstate them even in some patrolling units. Most of them were used by the specialist forces like the Gurkha contingent and the Special ops personal. This particular vehicle was taken on the island of Pulau Ubin. Its rugged nature obviously more suitable for non-urban environs:



It can sit about 11 people, if I am not wrong, but hell can break loose should the unfortunate happen. About 3 years ago, a similar vehicle with 10 policemen in it flipped while travelling down one of our expressways, killing 3 (along with the driver) and injuring everyone else.

The last photos for this batch, these were vehicles I saw displayed at the annual Police Day Carnival. Both vehicles were from the Special Operations Command (SOC), although I kinda wondered if the black one was for the Security Department:



The officers around it were in the SOC uniform, quite different from the ones worn by regular officers. They were there to entertain nosy kids and curious adults....and not to actually end up becoming my photo model unconsciously!



This is what we call the "ang chia" locally....meaning "Red Car." It is for anti-rioting purposes, but considering the kind of social and political climate we have here, it probably sees more action in every other activity then what it is intended for.

Well, thats all for now. If I can take more interesting shots and of a bigger variety of vehicles, I will post them here. Till then!

That italian Lamborghini rules!! I had already received lots of emails with pics of it. Of course, it will not be used by the entire italian police force hehehe.

The car will be used by specially trained police drivers, and it will be used only on highspeed roads for special cases. Like chasing Ferraris I guess...

Japanese police cars are the coolest, Skyline 92' Skyline 02's Toyota Crown, WRX (is it STI version?) that's just crazy...........

I wonder if Hong Kong police has any better cars to stop street racing? because illegal racing is quite popular there...IMO Ford just couldn't get the job done.

anyway some of China's police cars........
Honda Fit(known as jazz in Europe) Saloon - Guangzhou


Hyundai Sonata -Beijing


VW Polo -Guangzhou

Beijing police also uses VW Passat, and Shanghai police probably uses Buick Century and Regal.

Edmonton Police Service - Ford Crown Victoria. The EPS uses this as its vehicle of choice, although I've seen Chevrolet Caprices and Impalas in the EPS.

Another one showing the current colour scheme.


For those wondering about the RCMP, Canada's national force - most larger Canadian cities have their own police forces. However, in some metro areas, the RCMP does have jurisdiction within outlying cities in the metro regions while the core city has its own police force. The provinces of Ontario and Quebec each have their own provincial police force in place of the RCMP in smaller cities and towns.

RCMP cruiser - The Ford Crown Victoria is also quite commonly used by the RCMP.


2000 Chevy Impala


Chevy Caprice


GMC Suburban - quite common in smaller cities and more remote parts of Canada. Being a 4X4 and plenty of room for powerful engines, it's especially desireable.


The "rainbow" strip and emblem are actually reflective decals, making them easier to see at night.


RCMP old colors (before ca. 1995)
