IA DPS (IA) Mobile Command Center

The Iowa Department of Public Safety recently took delivery of their new LDV-built mobile command center. This mobile command center is built on a Freightliner M2 106 conventional cab and features a Cummins 260 HP engine and an Allison 2500 RDS automatic transmission with PTO provision. Originally an LDV stock series mobile command center, small upgrades were made by the IA DPS to make this vehicle fit their needs perfectly.

Four workstations are located in the front with pneumatic task chairs, custom-fabricated aluminum cabinets, laminate countertops, a 32″ monitor, dry erase board, and street mounted sliding egress window. The vehicle features one LDV flat-floor slide-out room which maximizes the interior space of the rear conference area. The conference area features a fixed conference table with a fold-down leaf, magnetic dry erase boards, and a LED screen. Fixed bench seating with removable cushions has been included for additional storage.

In the center of the vehicle sits a galley kitchen with a microwave, coffee maker, and a 2.7 cu. ft. refrigerator. There are also custom-fabricated aluminum cabinets, a closet, a space for an electronics rack, and a slide-out tray for a customer-supplied printer/scanner/fax/etc. Two pocket doors on heavy-duty aluminum tracks help create privacy between the different work areas. Prewire and installation provisions have been made for communications radios. Throughout the vehicle are GFCI duplex receptacles, Cat6 computer network jacks, HDMI Matrix Switcher, and HDMI input jacks.

The exterior features a 40″ Smart LED TV housed in a weatherproof compartment. A heavy-duty non-locking telescoping pneumatic mast features a custom-fabricated aluminum mounting plate for the mast cameras. To help with parking duties, a Zone Defense color backup camera system has been added. An automatic awning provides shade and coverage from inclement weather for those entering and exiting the vehicle. For HVAC needs, three ducted low-profile air conditioners, one wall-mounted heater, 1 kick space mount electric heater, and a direct-discharge diesel-fired furnace. An emergency lights and siren package has also been integrated into the vehicle.
