The Victorian and NSW police cars look like they have been a part of a kids fence painting competition. They look like c..p.

You would think with all their resources they could come up with an eye pleasing scheme that did not feel compelled to use every crayon in the pencil box.

Police get hi-tech mobile labs for major crime scenes
Herald Sun June 13, 2018.
video: Woman fought for life in Melbourne attack
VICTORIA Police have obtained three new state of the art mobile forensics labs which can be deployed to major crime scenes, including terror attacks and natural disasters.
The fleet includes a comm­and facility, a technical facility and a laboratory and analytical facility, all equipped with cutting edge forensic technology.
They will be able to upload and process CCTV footage and receive information from forensic officers at the scene, such as fingerprint images, photos and 3D scans of the area.
They also have devices that can see through packaging.

Counter Terrorism Assistant Commissioner Ross Guenther said the vehicles would significantly improve Victoria Police’s crime scene response.
“Police work around the clock to prevent and disrupt terrorist activity,” he said. “(But) in the event of a terr­or attack, it is essential to quic­kly establish who is resp­on­sible and what potentially dangerous materials have been
used.
“These vehicles will allow us to test potentially harmful substances at the scene of the crime rather than transporting samples to our forensic headquarters in Macleod, saving precious hours in a critical ­investigation.”

About 3 times a year the Police comeback to the empty Police Station where we live with a heap of cars but one very special van. It is a LHD yank tank van of unknown make, totally unmarked but with an odd looking square heavy looking window in each side of the van. It might be an armoured van of some sort but I don't know for sure. It is similar in size to a Mercedes van in length but not as wide and does not have a high roof line. I must stop and ask next time they are in the village. It appears to be around at similar times when drug raids are happening.

I'm not a huge fan of police cars, but here's one I would like to own.
I'd rather have tools that I don't need, than not have the tools I do need.
