Boston PD (MA) (MHQ) Rapid Response Vehicle


The Boston PD recently took delivery of their new rapid response vehicle. Powered by a 6.7L Power Stroke V8 Turbo diesel engine and a TorqShift 6-Speed Automatic transmission, this rapid response vehicle packs a big punch on a small platform.

An overhead light has been wired to become a courtesy light when the entry door is opened. Laminate countertops cover the workstation area as well as the opposing counter area. Custom-fabricated aluminum cabinets provide storage throughout the interior. A single workstation sits next to a 120/240Vac control center and a 5-drawer unit. Overhead cabinets with dry erase doors and under cabinet LED lights also sit above the workstation. For the storage closet, motion latch doors help keep them secure during transit while a heavy-duty stainless-steel hanging rod sits inside. On the back wall, a Bradley On-Site Portable Gravity-Fed eyewash station can be found.

On the exterior, a 30" wide bolt-on flip-down step can be found on the rear bumper, allowing access to the vehicle. A wall-mounted 5,120Btu/hr electric heater keeps things warm in the Boston winters while a low-profile air conditioner keeps things cool. Two deep-cycle 6Vdc batteries have been installed for auxiliary equipment in a slide-out weather resistant aluminum compartment. An awning provides cover for those outside. A 6.0-kW 120 volt AC generator keeps things humming along in a custom-fabricated generator housing. An exterior storage compartment provides additional storage outside the vehicle as well.

"I was very satisfied with the whole experience and process. I believe that the sales personnel and technicians are very knowledgeable and have years of institutional knowledge that shows in the execution of the unit. My questions were all ways answered immediately and if there was any reach back for additional confirmation it was always followed up with a phone call and email. The open lines of communication provided both of us the full awareness of where we were in the build process and helped eliminate unnecessary delays or unanswered questions. Everyone I encountered during my visits were always smiling and happy while working, which was great to see and experience. This is reflected in the finished product that was noticed by my staff and all others that have visited to see the new addition to our fleet."

The best feature of the vehicle is the flush floor slide-out in the front of the vehicle. It provides a very functional work area and always receives favorable comments.
