Gloucester Township (NJ) Mobile Communications Truck


The Gloucester Township Police Department chose LDV to create their mobile communications vehicle. Opting for a Freightliner MT-55 with a Cummins 300HP engine and Allison 2200 EVS automatic transmission with park pawl with PTO provision, they were able to combine plenty of power while customizing for their department's needs. The department added two of LDV's industry-exclusive flat-floor slide-outs to maximize the interior space of their communications vehicle. To control the slide-outs as well as other vehicle systems such as HVAC, generators, and awnings, Gloucester Township chose to incorporate a multiplex vehicle system.

The front conference area includes a fixed conference table with a flip-up leaf to accommodate up to six spider base chairs. Flip-down bench seating, monitors, and custom aluminum cabinets have also been added to the front conference room. In the center of the vehicle is a generous electronics rack, two cafe-style seats with monitors for surveying the vehicle's surroundings, custom-fabricated aluminum cabinets, and a slide-out tray for a printer/copier/scanner. Smooth silver FRP covered pocket doors have been installed on a heavy-duty track to create separation between the different areas of the vehicle when needed. The rear of the vehicle features another fixed conference table and two spider base chairs. Fixed bench seating has been fabricated with removable cushions to provides seating and additional storage space. Two workstations feature dual monitors, telephones, communications radios, and network jacks.

On the exterior, a generous awning provides cover to those utilizing the weatherproof exterior monitor or entering and exiting the vehicle. A 25kW liquid-cooled diesel generator provides power to the vehicle when needed and is housed in its own custom-built compartment. Two telescoping tripod lights have been added to the rear for illuminating a scene when needed. For surveillance purposes, a heavy-duty, non-locking telescoping pneumatic mast has been installed on the rear of the vehicle, allowing the department to keep watch over their surroundings. An access ladder provides roof access when needed for maintenance or surveillance. To assist with parking duties, a color back-up camera system has been installed.

"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.
