Montgomery County DPS (PA) SWAT Vehicle

Montgomery County DPS of Pennsylvania built their new SWAT vehicle on a Ford F-550 4×4 chassis. It is powered by a 6.7L Power Stroke diesel engine and Torq Shift 10 speed transmission with overdrive. A smart back up alarm and color backup camera system have been included to assist with parking duties. An aluminum roll-up door has been installed on the curb side of the vehicle’s body and contains two slide-out aluminum trays for additional gear storage. A flip-down aluminum step has been added on the rear bumper to provide access to the vehicle is through the rear entry door.

Inside the cab area is a custom fabricated console in cab. A crawl through space provides access from the cab of the vehicle to the body. Once inside the vehicle, there is flip-down bench seating and overhead fluted aluminum grab rails with rubber covering for grip when the vehicle is in motion. Non-skid commercial grade PVC flooring has been used for durability.

To secure gear in aluminum box ban shelves during transit, nylon web cargo netting has been added. Overhead cabinets have been added over this area as well. There is also a work area with overhead cabinets, under cabinet lighting, white boards, communications radios, and a laminate countertop. Next to the work area is a weapons cabinet that includes storage drawers and is secured with an aluminum roll-up door.

HVAC is handled by a low profile air conditioner and 5,120 Btu/hr electric heater. An emergency lights and siren package has been added for high visibility when traveling to a scene. Providing electric power to the vehicle when needed is a 7.5-kW 120 volt AC generator mounted inside a custom fabricated generator compartment. Pre-wire and installation provisions have been made for other communications radios as well.
