Do LAPD still use vehicles from the 2000s?

Anyone from LA or know a lot about the area, do you know if any patrol vehicles from the late 90s to early 2000s are still in service? Here are some videos and a photo showing some of them. Also are the vehicles in said videos still in service?

I could not get a good still photo of a Crown Victoria similar to the one in the video.

Watching Live PD, I have seen some CA agencies still using CVPI’s. I am just not well versed in telling of the years, but to me looks the same as the CVPI in your posting.

Regarding LAPD using CVPI s, I'll keep my eyes peeled. Wouldn't be surprised if they have several in there fleet, marked, unmarked, marked slick tops. I have seen Tahoe's in service with what appears to be bomb squad, usually with mini lightbars.
LA County Sheriff's are definitely still using CVPI's, as I saw one just this morning. They are also definitely still using Tahoe's as well.

Thank you all for your replies.

I actually live near San Francisco and I saw an E series sheriff with an old Edge 9000. Probably 1997 I’m guessing. San Francisco uses a lot of old cars still.

Thanks for looking out. I noticed the older ones with halogens only use Unitrols. Never heard any Smart Sirens. I heard LAPD is using a GMC Yukon too.

Spotted an LAPD marked slick top CVPI with two uniform officers today in downtown. Also saw live news this morning in south central LA, unmarked CVPI with plain clothes next to a few marked Explorers. Sorry, no chance to get photos.
