    Respectfully submitted-I have to dispute the year. Those Austin PD Crown Vic's are 1988-1991 models but remembering how violent Dallas was at the time sadly you are correct.

      Yes, I do stand corrected, it was a 1988 funeral for one of the five DPD officers killed that year.

    This is about 1989. There are other photos from this spot. I lived in Fort Worth and remember a police officer being killed in the line of duty. I think it was a funeral percession.

      No, it is more like 1986. I took the photo. It is the funeral of a Dallas officer.

    It was an experimental configuration done back in 1999. There were only a few of these cars. All-black cars were also tried out, but in limited numbers.

    I'm almost 50 & have lived in Texas all of my life and have never seen this configuration. Where did you find it?

    Janice, Newyorker, Chaz and whatever else you are calling yourself at the moment. Go find somewhere else to play. Preferably a freeway.

    I reckon they start off by sticking one foot in their pants, then the other....

    No, Janice, you are all washed up. They are not "private police". Check into it before you spout off again.

    Why does your police Tahoe truck have a large sign on the roof to say your on duty?

    So constables are being used like private police forces in some areas of Texas? Paid by (and therefore accountable to) little rich white gated communities? That's almost as bad as the practice in NYC of letting buisnesses (or anybody with the money, really) rent uniformed cops as scarecrows for their stores and events. Cops up there get rented out for cocktail parties and celebrity birthdays. It has really become a disgraceful, two-tiered system of police protection. I'm sorry to hear something like that is happening in Texas too.

    I hope the cop is alive and it is not a good sign when you see steering wheel on the passenger side where the the motor is god bless this officer!

    TX - Plano Police
    These photos are great!! You did a wonderful job, and I thought it was nice to see Plano police represented on here. There was an article in our local paper talking about how Plano police is planning to purchase more SUVs for officers to use because the cruisers can no longer carry all of the necessary equipment that officers increasingly rely on to do their jobs adequately on a daily basis. There is even a substation next to our library branch in my subdivision, and it's interesting to be able to see all of the different vehicles that they have available to the department.

    TX - Frisco Police
    it's an observation post. if you'll notice it says "sky watch" on the base. they can be used for something as simple as parking lot or traffic observation, to border observation. the u.s. border patrol and dhs use these at various points along the rio grande, as well as several checkpoints on routes to central and north texas. obviously it is in its collapsed mode. when someone is in the observation post, it elevates for a higher view.
