MI Law Enforcement

Here's the pic; it's part of the Conservation Officer Academy, which is held at MSP's academy. This was probably classroom portion on traffic stops.

This is the storage shed in Lansing where they store the "show cars" or "historical units". You can see the front end of the Ford Mustang in the back of the recruits, the new black Charger (Anniversary edition with bubble and gold striping on the hood) and the car you are referencing is the Ford Crown Vic - complete as it was for that year with a Unity light (without Spitfire dome) on top. This is the latest historical vehicle they refurbished.
 
Early 90's Saginaw Township Police. I took these circa '92? The unmarked was a traffic car - slick top, no markings except for the passenger door. S&W Pancake light in the dash with a red spot.

The entire fleet at that time used basic Streethawk (red/blue flashers to front, red/amber to rear) Unity Par 36 red/blue beams on the rear deck, and head and tail light flashers. Very simple, and very effective. I miss those days.

I see one last straggler TwinSonic in the first picture. Center-right.

Yes, very good eye!! That was the "Golf-side" car. We have a community that is on the edge of a golf course, and they have an association that pays for their own contract police officer.

It was mounted on a white, 4 door Pontiac 6000, if I remember correctly.

There is one you did miss though! They also had a Gray Chevy Caprice with a green Streethawk. If you look WAY WAY back against the other building you can see it backed in. This was used for park patrol.

The other vehicle that isn't in the picture was a Ford Tempo with Amber Streethawk for parking enforcement.

A gathering of K9 teams from numerous suburban Detroit agencies (mid to late 90s?). I think I see Ferndale (white Crown Vic), Troy (blue Crown Vic) and Southfield (the matching pair of Caprices). I can’t ID the truck or the far-right Caprice (maybe West Bloomfield Township?).

Great pics. I love seeing the changes over the years. My favorite is the car with the all blue twinsonic lightbar.
If you're referring to the Northland Diplomat, that Twinsonic is Green. :eek:

we are supposed to pull over for green lights?
Not between 1990-2008, hence the red and blue lights. Before that, yes. Not doing so resulted in a chase and an arrest for fleeing and eluding in addition to any other charges.

Anyone know what happened to all of the great pictures that were here? Most have just become generic thumbnails that don't link to or open anything. : /

Should we reboot the Michigan Law Enforcement Thread?
