The law enforcement sector has so many different department with so many different missions. When a police dept wants to upfit a vehicle, a cabinet system is almost always a part of this process. The type of cabinet will depend on what tasks the dept is responsible for. For example, a police chief’s vehicle will want to have a command cabinet with the ability to command a post when the need arises. There should probably be plenty of space to store gear and equipment, but more importantly, there should be a command board where a chief can map out organized directions to his staff. There should also be a radio face plate for radios and electrical power sources. The face plates have room behind them to house the wires and connections and keep them out of the way.

Most chief’s vehicles will have lighting. There are different types of lighting that can be used on a chief’s vehicle. Most commonly are bar lights mounted on the top of the vehicle as well as grille lighting in the front grill of the vehicle. But a chief can go wild and put lights all over the car: interior windshield light bar, rear windshield light bar, on the fenders and the running board and on the rear view mirrors to name a few. Some of the quality emergency lighting manufacturers are Whelen, Code 3, Weldon and Federal Signal.
