Santa Monica Police Department Mobile Command Unit


Santa Monica Police Department chose a Freightliner M2 conventional cab chassis with three slide out rooms as the platform for their mobile command unit. It features a 350HP engine and Allison 3000 EVS automatic transmission with PTO provision. The police department chose to incorporate three flat-floor slide-out rooms to increase the interior space of their mobile command center.

A large conference room is located in the front with seating for six or more with a Smart overlay that can be easily cordoned off. The access door to the unit is in front of the galley which is home to an electronics racking and cafe style check station. The mobile command center's rear features four large communication workstations. Solid surface countertops have been installed for added durability.

The exterior of the vehicle features a weatherproof exterior workstation with A heavy-duty non-locking telescoping pneumatic mast is located on the rear of the vehicle with camera system. HVAC is handled by three low-profile air conditioners and three wall-mount electric heaters. A heavy-duty fully automatic one-touch leveling system ensures the vehicle sits level while at a scene. To provide coverage to those working outside at the exterior workstation or accessing storage compartments, an electric lateral arm awning has been installed.

"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.
