Illinois State Police SWAT/Tactical Vehicles


The Illinois State Police was looking for a versatile SWAT/Tactical Situation Command Unit for their operations. The Ford Transit High Roof 350 was selected for these three new vehicles for its versatility, fuel economy and easy of use on scene. The vehicles each feature a 275HP 3.5L EcoBoost engine with 10-speed automatic transmission with sliding side entry door as well as rear entry doors. A custom fabricated weatherproof exterior workstation was integrated into the curbside wall of each vehicle which each house a 32" LED Smart TV monitor and flip-down work surface.

We custom fabricated pull-out aluminum steps for easy entry into the vehicles as well. Once inside the vehicle, fixed bench seating with hinged cushions for underseat storage were built in our upholstery shop and installed. A stowable folding chair was included and secured behind the driver seat. An overhead bulkhead houses communications radio, emergency lighting controls and more. Aluminum storage cabinets were included with undercabinet LED lighting. The overhead cabinet has dry erase writing surface. A second 32" display monitor is installed along with a locking slide-out work surface to create a versatile workstation. An overhead grab handle was installed on the ceiling for staff.

A complete emergency lighting and siren package was also integrated. These incredible vehicles showcase what is possible with a well-designed Transit vehicle platform.

"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.
