    Alright so the next time I get pulled over, I`ll be sure to ask the officer if he/she needs any wax.

    Re: Occupations

    As we have a fair number of active/retired LEOs here, I do wonder about whether they keep their "work" vehicles well-detailed on way or another. I`ve seen a few in-service units that are obviously kept nice, and our local PD has their fleet done to a could-be-worse standard at the local carwash. A few of the retired copcars I`ve had were clearly pampered from new; they stood out in stark contrast to the norm.

    Re: Occupations

    Figured I would add to the number of LEO`s here. To answer your question I try to keep my car clean and usually is more than the others, however all shifts share them. They get destroyed.

    Yeah, I figured that the "assigned to one officer"/other special cases are the ones most likely to stay nice. There`s a reason why used copcars are sometimes called "vomit comets". It took me *forever* to find the right P71 Crown Vic.

    I try and keep mine as well detailed as possible. Its probably the best looking car in the fleet for a 2009 Charger with 120k miles on it. I look at it as a privilege to have the car. I know other guys who have never changed the oil since they have driven theirs.

    This is pretty much the standard here. I try and take care of the cars, keep them washed etc. Other guys don`t care. If we had our own take home cars, then YES...it would be pampered.

    LOL Won`t happen again officer

    I`ve actually thought about offering a free detailing day for the local PD. I figured the guy on the bright orange motorcycle should be in their good graces.

    I take care of mine as much as possible as well. I`m in a smaller department, so it`s not shared as much and my partners aren`t exactly pigs. However, I do work once in awhile for an upfitter. I`m usually stripping retired cars. Three cars in particular were absolutely disgusting - they would cause any pro here to look at them and say "not only no, but he!! no I won`t detail that!" I`m sure I`ll get an amen for that from my fellow LEO`s here. We can be the worst.

    The ironic part was that one was from a very affluent, squared-away department, who kept their exteriors sharp. Apparently no one looked inside (it was the patrol supervisor`s Tahoe...)

    I`m pleasantly surprised by the number of LEO`s here. I`m not alone!

    Re: Occupations

    mc2hill- You might be getting busier in the next year or so, huh? You guys primarily deal with mid-cap, large-cap, or across the board?

    JBM- Does your Inner Autopian ever get going regarding your company`s vehicles?

    gordenjuan- For some reason the Supervisor`s interior being nasty surprises me, guess people are just like that but I`d think he spends enough time in the vehicle to want it decent.

    And speaking as somebody who`s *NOT* in LE, I too like seeing LEOs here. IMO it gives a bit of balance to car-centric forums where a lot of folks can be, uhm...given to irresponsibility if you get my drift.

    Heh heh, I`m sure not surprised by that!
