Full Version: yellow police surveillance van?
FightBack Forums > Queries > Technical Discussion of Enforcement Devices
4g63
i have come off at junction 9 of the m60 a couple of times recentley and have noticed a yellow police surveillance van on a very nearby island just sat there. I have seen it once during the day and the other night and just wondered what it would be doing there? i thought these vans were meant to be used around town centres to just monitor anti social behaviour? or do they have anpr equipment and speed guns etc?

thanks

Most likely monitoring traffic going to a football match? Not sure what GMP use but my local 'CCTV' vans are fully equipped for that purpose and may just have room for ANPR (maybe included into the CCTV package anyway), certainly no room for any speed detection device, they are also fully loaded as a 'mobile command post' with radios etc so maybe are being used for that purpose?

was thinking along the same lines myself, must have been all the shoppers coming off to go to the trafford centre and the police have thought it would be a good idea to check tax and MOT etc.


thanks for the reply

Probably has a LTI20/20 mounted inside , is there a window or door open?

Now why did we even bother posting, such an inciteful responce!

I assume from you're nom-de-guerre 4g63 that you drive a 3 diamonds car? I have a 7 stars!

I stand by my original post either CCTV or possibly used as a CP.
