The Oshkosh Police Department of Wisconsin chose LDV to create their new SWAT vehicle. Oshkosh chose a Ford F59 stripped chassis with a 7.3L V8 engine and 6-speed TorqShift automatic transmission with OD to build their vehicle on. On the rear of the vehicle is a flip-down aluminum step Diamondback step surface to use with the dual rear entry doors. On the inside, these doors feature aluminum treadplate and two LED scene lights. The windows also feature blackout curtains for additional privacy.
Also found inside is a custom-fabricated console that has been constructed to house electrical components and control panels for vehicle systems. A passenger jump seat with seat belt was also added to the front area of the vehicle. Two banks of fixed bench seating make up the front area of the vehicle. These bench seats provide additional storage space within the vehicle due to the hinged cushions, allowing for easy flip-up access. Weapons storage is key in this vehicle, which is why Oshkosh chose to incorporate shield storage behind the fixed bench seating. Two tall shield storage areas have also been added to the ends of each bench seat. Two knurled aluminum grab rails are found overhead to use when standing while the vehicle is in motion. Overhead cabinets have been installed above the seating and include dry erase writing surfaces and under cabinet lighting.
Towards the rear of the vehicle is a weapons cabinet with a lockable roll-up door also aids in storage. Two sets of aluminum box pan shelves feature mesh cargo netting to protect gear being stored during transport. Additional custom cabinets and a tall closet are also included in this area. Laminate has been used on the countertops throughout for durability. Pre-wire and installation provisions for communications radios have also been made. To create separation between the areas of the vehicle, a flush pocket door on a heavy-duty aluminum track can be used.
A color back-up camera system has been installed to assist with parking the vehicle. For high visibility when traveling to a scene, a complete emergency lights and siren package has been added. HVAC consists of a 7,500 BTU direct discharge gasoline-fired furnace and a 53,000 BTU/hr engine-driven air conditioning system.

"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.
