Palo Alto Police Department Mobile Command Center


The Palo Alto Police Department chose LDV to build their 30ft. mobile command center. Built on a Freightliner MT-55 forward control chassis, it boasts a 300HP engine and Allison 2500 EVS automatic transmission. A large front slide-out has been integrated into the vehicle’s body to increase the interior space of the front conference area. LDV’s Intel-I-Touch™ vehicle automation system has been installed for simple deployment of features such as awnings, generators, and lights as well as automating startup and shutdown procedures.

The front conference room includes a set-aside workstation with monitors and a task chair. Curbside fixed bench seating provides seating around the fixed conference tables. The streetside fixed bench seating has room for a stowable conference table to be set up when needed. The center galley is accessible from front, back and outside. It includes a microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator, and sink for comfort and convenience. An electronics rack and custom-fabricated cabinets provide storage space for both electronics and the department’s equipment.

The rear of the command post features 4 generous workstations. Loaded with monitors for video monitoring, network jacks, power outlets, communications radios, custom cabinets, task chairs, and a printer on a slide-out tray the rear is a well-equipped work area.

The exterior of the vehicle features complete emergency lighting and sirens for high visibility when traveling to a scene. Telescoping tripod lights have been added to the body for deployment when additional illumination is required at a scene. Dual heavy-duty non-locking telescoping pneumatic masts have been installed on the rear of the vehicle and feature camera systems to keep watch over the department’s surroundings. An 18’ awning has been installed on the curbside to provide cover above the curbside entryway.

"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.
