On what the cops go in America
• On what the cops go in America
A police officer (also known as "cop") - the most frequent character in American cinema, storm offenders, the guarantor of the law, they are proud, they are respected, they are afraid, they are always ready to help. Every state in America has the right to decide how it will look like a police transport.
In large cities, the specific colors of cars in general, in my opinion, is considered decoration of the urban environment design. Today I'll tell you what to move cops from NYPD, SFPD, LAPD and show what it looks like special vehicles in Canada and the patrol cars of the American Secret Service.
In addition, I tell why and how I ended up in one of the police departments in Los Angeles.
Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor, or just a Crown Vic - the most wide-spread model of the car of law enforcement agencies in North America. It was produced from 1992 to 2011 (two generations).
Everyone knows the look of this car, regardless of color. Why are only the chrome "retro-caps" on wheels.
Police in Los Angeles International Airport.
SFPD (San Francisco Police Department).
In spite of the fact that these vehicles are powerful enough, they are very bulky, wasteful and slow to date. Their place will be occupied, for example, Chevrolet Caprice Police Patrol Vehicle, Dodge Charger Percute Police Car, Ford Police Interceptor 2013.
In New York, I met unusual spoilers ( "Interceptor"):
The NYS is the inscription on virtually every machine:
$ 10, 000 Reward is offered for the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in the shooting of a New York City police officer. Call 1-800-COPSHOT
Pay attention to the dirty glass to the right of the van.
New York militiamen and traffic police:
Another NYPD (New York Police Department).
LAPD Officer (Los Angeles Police Department).
To air can quickly identify the unit and the number of the car, on the roof of a large numbering applied.
reports any suspicious activity to the police.
The patrol car the Secret Service in Washington, at the White House.
And now, how I found myself in one of the police departments in Los Angeles. In the evening at the airport, when he was left for an hour of free time, I went to the final approach for capturing beautiful views of planes coming in to land. And on the way back to the side of the road found the car license plate.
Most likely, someone unsuccessfully fit into the rotation, bumped, or something else, resulting in lost mark in the box. I looked around, no one. For the first two seconds flashed the thought, take it home as a souvenir, but then as a law-abiding citizen, decided to surrender to the police (and would you classify or took them?). The more an excuse to go to the department. Along the way, I found a local station. Passed the discovery, the officer laughed, did a photo souvenir.
