    A friend of mine was passing through the Alamo city and spotted Merc getting pulled over by a plain silver V6. It has non-exempt plates and an abbreviated lighting package. Unmarked cars are not specifically illegal in Texas but they aren't exactly legal either. They fall in to the category of special operations and when deployed are usually working with a marked unit close by since pursuits by unmarked cars are illegal.

    They have been doing that for years. Here is a picture I took out my old office window off of 281 in San Antonio several years ago:

    Saw one of those in Virginia once. It was a white GT I believe that had pulled someone over.

    Here's the installer, Southwest Public Safety video on them. You can also checkout some of the gear in there. I geek out on these kinds of gadget cars, even if they are the enemy.

    On the dash they're running a state of the art Stalker DSR2X Ka 34.7 radar. They've also got a WiFi receiver and a drivers license reader in the center dash. On the back window deck you can see they dropped their antennas on the inside of the glass to keep them hidden.

    SAPD has a lot of them. Most are mustangs now and they have radar as well. They look for speeders, aggressive drivers, and idiot drivers that txt and drive. They been phasing out the charger ones for awhile.

    They are perfectly legal. My neighbor down the street works for SAPD.

    Not The Enemy

    I've not personally seen or encountered any in my 6 county region of medical travel, but I do the speed limit except when necessary due to passing problem drivers. I support C.O.P.S. and am proud of our brave service members. Police is public service. IMG_20180428_085634_098.jpg

    I know one of the Lief Johnson (Austin) mechanics that works on the state trooper service pool. Their service contract includes superchargers, but he has not seen one in Austin. More likely on the interstate out west: Chihuahuan Desert/El Paso/VanHorn/Ozona/Junction/SanAntonio. Would be cool to see pics if DPS have one. Even moderate 5-6 psi would be enough, lol.

    DPS has the Charger but it's just for fun, not for business.

    Those are pretty slick with the antennas inside on the back dash. I always liked the FHP Marauder Unmarked cars. I am in a new Explorer interceptor these days.
