Well lots of cars have been but here the most popular are caprice classics and crown vics, the weirdest police car I have ever seen was a pt cruiser though.

Chevrotet Caprice, Ford Crown Vic, Chevrolet Camaro, Ford Tauruses, Chevrolet Impalas, Dodge Intrepids, Chevrolet Tahoes, Dodge Dakotas, Ford F-150s, and once I may have seen a Ford Explorer with a light bar.

In the past, Plymouth Furys, Ford Mustangs, Dodge Monacos, Some kind of Buick (maybe a Grand National?), and those are all I can think of at the moment.

I've seen a Chevy Lumina. I've also heard of a Mustang cop car, but where I live, it's all Impalas.

Falcons and Commodores over here mostly (some with V8's)
Also there was a thing for a while to use WRX's for city cop cars due to better agility in traffic etc. Not sure if it took off. It didn't in Brisbane, but I think Melbourne were talking about it.

crown vics and impalas are the two most common.

intrepids are used in some places..

explorers, caravans, dakotas are the ghosters around here

the rcmp(royal canadian mounted police) uses corvettes as high speed chase cars.

next year...some dept's are getting the new charger as squad cars :thumbs:

We now have plain-clothes cops driving hatch-back civics with fart can mufflers...and they try to provoke you to street race....it's really pretty evil. I've heard about the cops driving civics a few years back but didn't believe it...nobody knew anything about it...then I finally witnessed it happen a few weeks ago.

As far as a 106mph mini...I would feel safer jumping out of a plane without a 'chute. :doh:

Hey guys,
I'm new here and I know I'm in the wrong forum but I just wanted to let you all know of the cop cars that I've seen around my area! I probably won't post again but just wanted to let you guys know what I've seen in my local police force. Their most popular car is the Impala.

Currently in use:
A PT Cruiser
A Mazda 3
Ford F-150

What they had:

I'm sure there might be more but that's what I know of.

The day before yesterday I saw a Nissan Frontier with "Sheriff" on the side parked outside the Eureka Jail. I didn't think they used Nissans.
