    Sweet Jesus, that is an ugly car. I'm sorry, but it really is.

    NY - New York City Police
    I tell you, this picture warms my heart. That's the REAL New York City. Before the terror attack, before massive gentrification, before annual brown-outs, and before 500% rent hikes; when things still made a certain ammount of sense here.

    I think these things are ugly as hell.

    NY - Suffolk Co. Police
    The Suffolk County Police hummer is dispatched to the extreme emergencies that occasionally menace the hamptons, such as when a drunken yuppie looks out her condo window and thinks she sees a black male who is NOT employed in some capacity by one of the residents, or when NYC people somehow scrape the money together for one of those two hour L.I.R.R. rides and come up to leave their garbage all over the nude beaches.

    NY - New York City Sanitation Police
    Similar to parks enforcement, except that the sanitation police are sworn, armed police officers. Their job, as was said below, is to prevent and investigate crimes involving sanitation laws and the public health in general. Basically, if you see somebody throwing an old sofa in the river or pouring bleach down a drain, this department would be extremely interested. Remember, NYC has the largest governmental structure in the nation besides the feds, so there are dozens of small, rather obscure police departments like this one lurking around the city.

    NY - New York City Parks Enforcement
    Oh yeah, I forgot. Parks Enforcement are the only ones who drive the white jeeps. The rest of the NYC Parks Department drives jeeps and vans that are solid green with a white maple leaf on the front doors. That's the primary way to tell the law enforcement branch from everyone else. "Parks Enforcement" only appears on the patch on the door.

    NY - New York City Parks Enforcement
    No, they're not armed. They are the branch of the city Parks Department that enforces the rules and regulations of the parks. I suppose they should be considered peace officers. They have arrest, ticket, and summons powers withing the parks, and they give support to NYPD during parades and marathons and things like that.

    NY - New York City Dept of Transportation
    DOT maintains city-owned bridges, highways, and streets. You know, thy put up the street signs, pave the roadways, and re-cement the highway supports. They also run the Staten Island Ferry. Until recently they were responsible for parking enforcement, but Giulianni gave that to the NYPD. Only NYPD does commercial vehicle inspection (within the city of course).

    I think he is trying to ask why don't they use blue.

    Where the heck do you see blue? NYPD has been amber/red/clear since the 60s/70s.

    I always thought that NYPD was the last bastion of red-and-white lights - from the single rotator in this photo, to twin rotators to lightbars (see photo 62). Maybe they added amber at some stage, but they never seemed to use blue (unlike Chicago PD). Anyone know?

    Fine examples of the one-horsepower, open-top alternative-fuel model - eh?
