    Yep, CoLP (as they love to be known) are for the "City of London" which includes Westminster, the Financial District and Government nonsense. If I'm right, Stirling actually made the Met-Sound siren boxes, or had something to do with the Met, as a few of the "Museum" pieces of the Met have...

    Actually, the sequel to the "Met Sound" siren is in use with quite a few Londonish/South East forces (Essex, City of London) in the form of Stirling SS2H4 siren boxes (I used to have one). British Transport Police used to use them too. As for the Met, it's usually budget lighting and vehicles...

    Not many police forces still use two tone horns (some Welsh ones do and Greater Manchester are still going strong), there has been a lot of speculation in the UK EV spotting world over the high pitched siren - we mostly reckon it's a Premier Hazard of some form (the piercer and hi-lo tones are...

    I actually really like the light setup on these vehicles, and I dunno what was going on, but if there's 9 vehicles responding, someone done messed up big time.

    More Cannucks - note how the traffic yields to the RCMP! Sometimes you just need to go retro:

    An interesting series

    An interesting series

    So this is a fairly new series airing over here in the UK. Follows Cheshire Police's vehicle workshop/garage. Gives a pretty good insight into what goes on around the vehicular side of Police as well as dealing with budgeting and equipment

    Some of the stuff Mr Pratt and Midwest deal with is pretty insane (I've been subbed to his channel for ages). The recent Fed-Ex one was quite the recovery

    I love how the two tones and HLF sync.

    Sparky's 2017 GMC Sierra 2500HD

    I think for full Euro effect, you've gotta have the beacon off-set to the Driver's side. Or, Double Beacon!

    Your favourite 'weird' vehicles, some real, some "photoshops"

    Correct they are Left hand drive. Although it's not that uncommon for Brits to have Left hand drive vehicles etc (Remember, 99% of Europe drives on the other side) and there a lot of vintage vehicles and imports knocking about. We also get a lot of Tourists bringing their own cars, so feel...

    Your favourite 'weird' vehicles, some real, some "photoshops"

    So, I've recently discovered Heathrow Airport has it's own ambulance service. Why is this weird you ask? They use US built Ambulances. Why is that weird you ask? It's England, these things look very strange going through British streets... They also range in vehicle colour. Including the...

    Wail v. Yelp- really make any difference?

    I'd assume because it's being projected forwards, and away from the onboard person(s) of the emergency vehicle.

    I told you the Scandies have some odd things going on... I really like the Danish Police's beacon usage - minimalist yet effective

    Wail v. Yelp- really make any difference?

    Sorry to resurrect this - but I found this snippet from the UK TV show "Police, Camera, Action" in the late 90s. There's actually an old London Fire Brigade, Fire engine with this "siren" fitted....I'll try and find it..

    DPG - Diplomatic Protection Group and I believe it's a 2018 Ford C-Max It's a mystery one really, some people think it's an Old Redtronic, others think it's a Premier Hazard variant. I'd lean towards Redtronic personally. Here's a better example of it:

    Some oddballs in this, even for the UK. Some new vehicles, old vehicles, total variety of light setups and an old Met Police Vauhxall Zafira (It's the black unmarked one) with one of my favourite sirens on it.
