Dayton Police Department EOD Vehicle

Dayton Police Department took delivery of their new bomb/EOD vehicle. Built on a Freightliner M2 conventional regular cab, the vehicle also features an air suspension and air brakes. The vehicle is powered by a 300HP engine and an Allision 2500 EVS automatic transmission. Dayton opted to include a flat-floor slide-out to help increase the interior space of their vehicle. This slide-out as well as other vehicle systems can be controlled through the vehicle multiplex system along with HVAC, lighting, and more features.

The cab area features a custom-fabricated console to hold radio heads, siren control heads, and a small multiplex touch pad. Custom-fabricated aluminum cabinets are found throughout the vehicle with LED strip lighting underneath. Flip-down bench seating has been fabricated for additional seating when needed. Pre-wire and installation provisions were made for a customer-owned wireless router and robot controls. Satin anodized aluminum roll-up doors house aluminum box pan shelves for transporting equipment. Cargo netting with thumb fasteners also provide safe transport for equipment while Versa-tie down rings can hold larger equipment like the department’s robot while traveling to a scene.

The exterior features custom pull-out aluminum steps in a narrow cassette so they can be stored in the body when not in use. A custom aluminum side rail lift gate for transporting their robot in and out of the body has also been added. To assist with parking duties, a color backup camera system has been installed. An awning provides cover over the curbside entry door and weatherproof exterior monitor with another multiplex touchpad. For access to the roof, a ladder was installed on the back of the vehicle. HVAC needs are handled by two low-profile air conditioners, two electric heaters, and one direct-discharge furnace with individual thermostat. To ensure the vehicle sits level on any terrain, a vehicle leveling system was installed.

The Dayton Bomb Squad was called to investigate a suspicious package. Read the original article HERE.
