They did that hear about 2 years ago when cash was tight and they started making officers share cars, instead of buying more and everyone would have a take home unit! They had the reserve officers bring their vehicles in, and they would throw a whelen inner edge in the front, a traffic advisor in back, a laptop stand, a laptop, a whelen cencom, and give you a handheld radio and said have at it. All units are/were unmarked and were not allowed to do traffic stops unless they were potential felony stops. They would give you a fuel card that you could use at any of the fueling stations on department property, and you were covered by their insurance once you clocked in. The negatives are, well you'll be really putting your car through its paces by driving it 100+ miles every shift. Also some departments probably wont pay for the maintenance on your car, such as tires, oil changes, etc... Another thing is if you pull up to a gas station and get out and some guy is robbing the place, and he sees those lights in your car you might become a potential target for a criminal, but anyone with a pov with lights in it runs that risk! Basically i wouldn't recommend it!
