  3. The newest patrol vehicle for BPD is this 2018 Ford Police Interceptor SUV. It replaces a 2011 Ford CVPI and has been assigned Car 267.
  4. Not trying to sound like a d**k, but either; Remove the lights and get over it, leave them in and don't use them or become an officer in a VAC/FD that will allow you to use them. It's hard enough to get people to pull over for marked emergency vehicles (i.e. Police cars, fire apparatus, ambulances). I'm aware that other states allow the use of RLS. In some areas, I could see the benefits. However, in the metro NY area, not so much. I'm sure you spent lots of money on your lights and equipment. Perhaps you could sell them to try and recoup some of your money? Either way, best of luck to you and happy holidays.
