Linn County Sheriff Investigations Vehicle


The Linn County Sheriff had LDV upfit a Ford Transit to create a field investigations vehicle for their department. Built on a Ford Transit 350 HR gas van platform, this is a well-laid out mobile crime lab. It is powered by a 3.5L GTDI V6 engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Custom-fabricated aluminum cabinets have been integrated throughout the vehicle for interior storage. VersaTie tracks have been recessed into the floor along with VersaTie tie-down rings. A sit-down workstation includes a swivel task chair, under cabinet lighting, and (4) duplex receptacles. To keep the task chair from rolling off the stepwell, a roll-stop lip has been added to the stepwell's edge. A stand-up workstation has also been added including (2) duplex receptacles and mesh cargo netting above it. Dry erase boards have been added for use while on a scene as well.

The exterior features a pull-out step with Diamondback extruded aluminum grating and framed with powdercoated steel by the sliding side door. Dual rear entry doors provide another point of access to the vehicle. Custom graphics finish off the exterior as well.

"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.
