Philadelphia Police Department Lab Vehicle


The Philadelphia Police Department took delivery of their versatile mobile lab vehicle. This mobile laboratory is built on a customer-supplied Ford F-550 diesel 4x4 crew cab. The front bumper has had a winch integrated along with a full grill guard kit.

Satin anodized aluminum-finish roll-up doors house adjustable shelves for equipment storage. The front roll-up compartment also houses a pullout tray, tool board, adjustable bins with Lexan covers, and rubber matting. Center transverse compartments also include a lift-up door and slide-out trays for easy access to equipment being stored. Some shelves include dividers to keep smaller items organized while stored and traveling to a scene. A custom-fabricated control panel has been added and includes the breakers for the generator and shore power. GFCI receptacles with weatherproof PVC covering have also been integrated throughout the vehicle body.

On the rear, a vented custom-fabricated generator compartment houses a 7.5-kW 120 volt AC generator. A Class III receiver hitch has also been installed for towing capabilities. For easy access to the generator box, a 12” Diamond plate rear bumper with recessed step has been fabricated. Emergency lights have been integrated throughout the exterior, including a customer-supplied light bar. A 120Vac light tower has been added to illuminate the scene when working at night. To assist with parking duties a color backup camera system has been added.

"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.
