The New Jersey Transit Police chose a Freightliner XCR chassis with a Berkshire commercial shell featuring a Cummins L9 engine and Allison 3000 automatic transmission for their new mobile command center. There have been two industry-exclusive flat-floor slide-outs and two raised floor slide-out room extensions incorporated into the command center's body, maximizing the space for New Jersey's staff inside the vehicle. Each slide-out features a flashing amber warning light and is controlled by LDV's Intel-I-Touch™ vehicle automation system. This one-touch system also assists in the control of other power systems including generators, lighting, masts, and other features as well.
The front of the vehicle features a work area with six workstations for staff. Each workstation features a spider-base task chair, two 24" Smart LED HDTV monitors, RJ-45 Cat6 computer network jacks, telephone, a customer-supplied computer, and custom cabinets. The rear also features a conference room area with a fixed conference table, fixed bench seating with removable cushions, fixed bench seating with under-seat aluminum cabinets, three spider-base task chairs, two framed whiteboards, and a TSI Touch Overlay over the 49" LED display with a custom map storage compartment underneath.
Numerous pre-wire provisions have been made for features such as a single antenna communications radio as well as the installation of customer-supplied parts such as a printer/fax/copier/scanner, a plotter, a Dell Thunderbolt Dock, and a customer-owned computer. A generous electronics rack has also been installed for storing the vehicle's important electrical components as well as additional custom-fabricated aluminum cabinets. A galley kitchen features a microwave, coffee maker, and 2.7 cu. ft. refrigerator. Two flush pocket doors separate the different vehicle sections, creating privacy when needed. A multi-unit charger for radios has also been installed in the galley area, making for easy access when on a scene.
The outside features an exterior workstation with a 49" TV monitor, communications radio, telephone, mini Intel-I-Touch pad, two RJ-45 Cat 6 network jacks, GFCI outlet, HDMI input, and an Extron remote control panel. A heavy-duty, non-locking telescoping pneumatic mast with a dome network camera and Lightfinder technology has been installed on the back, assisting the New Jersey staff with keeping watch over their surroundings while at a scene. Five IP perimeter cameras also assist in keeping a full view of the vehicle's perimeter at all times.
A 19'-8" electric awning provides shade to those utilizing the exterior workstation outside or while exiting and entering the vehicle. This awning also includes lighting that runs across the edge of the awning for additional light. Numerous extreme-duty body storage compartments have been integrated into the body of the vehicle, including a customer-supplied Pelican cooler on a pull-out tray in one. Electric power is supplied to the vehicle by a 25-kW liquid-cooled diesel generator when needed. For cooling needs, four ducted low-profile air conditioners with their own thermostats have been installed, along with a kick space mount electric heater and a 12,000-16,000 Btu/hr diesel-fired furnace for heating needs.
