The current White Ridge Sheriff's Department. Each patrol vehicle carries two officers.
The vehicles are 2007 Ford F-150 Police Interceptors. Each vehicle comes with a beefed-up chassis and suspension, as well as a Ford SOHC 4.6-liter V-8 engine, putting out 250 HP; as opposed to the 239 HP civilian model. They also come with police-issue grille guards. In addition, Code 3 supplied the lightbars and emergency lights and sirens.
The F-150s were the perfect choice for WRSD, given the terrain and weather conditions they would have to take on. Both vehicles are equipped with 4-wheel-drive and run-flat tires. They have proven themselves just about everywhere in White Ridge, and have served every day for five years straight.
Also in use by the WRSD are two trailers. One is the Traffic Control Unit, which carries barriers, radios, and handheld lights. The other is the WRSD Special Operations Unit, which currently carries the SWAT and Bomb Squad equipment. Both units are due at all public events, as well as emergencies.
Just over four weeks ago, I was driving through Gloucester, MA looking for a place to buy a pro-grade rainsuit for my trip. And what's sitting outside GPD's station? Twin '07 F-150s. Then I knew what WRSD needed. So I set to work, building both chassis before I left for my crew. When I got back, I finished the bodies with parts I had on-hand. I built the two trailers, and then it was time to show them off! The center of these builds are the grille guards, without them the trucks just wouldn't look the same.
Which leads me to our game... Find That SNOT! I used a lot of SNOT on the trucks, so look for it!
More WRSD builds will come in the future. But for now, enjoy!

Great builds James, really like that colour scheme. I dont mean to sound stupid but what is "SNOT"???
You don't sound stupid at all! Actually, I just learned about it a short while ago. In fact, you use basic SNOT in every one of your builds. SNOT is short for Studs Not On Top; and basically it's using Lego parts to make pieces that Lego doesn't. It's putting them sideways, upside down, diagonally, etc. to make your builds look more realistic, or just add in something different. In this case, I used upside down 1x1x2/3 slopes around the wheels to make the trucks more uniform in color. Look closely, and you'll see it!
I love them and I found the one spot you didnt use snot the second trailer!!!!! Ha i did the oppsite of what you said to do "find some snot on here" I belive you said that. But I was just joking not meaning to be mean at all. Love them
very nice police pickups james! my highlight has to be the trailers, although i love the ram bar, what s in the closed one? is it a surprise to unveil in your mission stories? i did nt do trailers yet, also, to give justice to both your vehicles and town, you should expose them on your streets! i d love that! have you forgot how nice your town look?....or is it destroyed? i hope not! good luck james!!!
