The Department of Public Safety’s patrol fleet is comprised of a number of specialized vehicles and squad cars.
Our current patrol fleet includes:
- CAR 30 is a 2013 Ford Explorer Interceptor
- CAR 31 is a 2014 Ford Taurus Interceptor
- CAR 32 is a 2014 Dodge Charger Interceptor
- ATV is a 2008 CHGC Razor Back 250
- 2005 Mobile Command Unit Trailer
Most of our patrol vehicles are marked with Drew University Department of Public Safety insignia and emergency lights for increased visibility. There are two unmarked vehicles in our fleet, which are also visible below.
All of the department’s patrol cars are outfitted with a Mobile Data Computer, Radio, Emergency Light Controls, Police Scanner, Siren Controls, Mobile Vision Video Recording System, and Cell Phone. They also carry lifesaving equipment (Defibrillators, medical supplies, oxygen), as well as lockout kits, forced entry tools, life jackets, and even a blanket.
Patrol from the Past
Below are vehicles that have been retired from the fleet for one reason or another (too many miles, a car fire, and maybe even a fender bender or two). Not only is it fun to look back on all the patrol cars we’ve driven over the years, but it’s a great way to see the different designs we’ve played with over time and how far technology has come. If you have a picture of any old drew police cars, please let us know!
