Chester County Detectives Crime Scene Unit

VEHICLE OVERVIEW

The Chester County detectives recruited LDV to build their mobile crime scene unit. This vehicle is built on a Ford E-450 cutaway chassis. This 12ft. long custom dry van body houses a 6.8L Triton V10 gas engine and an electronic 6-speed automatic transmission with overdrive and tow-haul capabilities.

The inside features a space for two workstations complete with swivel task chairs. Prewire provisions have been made for communications radios to be installed. Custom-fabricated aluminum cabinets and a closet provide storage with aluminum box pan shelves. Laminate countertops have been added for durability. GFCI duplex receptacles have been added throughout for electric needs. For additional privacy, a pocket door has been added between the cab and work area.

The exterior features an awning to cover exterior storage compartments during inclement weather. A 5.5kW AC generator has been installed in its own custom-fabricated all-aluminum generator compartment. Emergency lights and siren have been added to increase visibility when traveling to a scene. For HVAC needs, a low-profile air conditioner and ceiling BTU heat strip keep the temperature comfortable. Dual entry rear doors provide additional access into the vehicle.

"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.
