University of Georgia Police Department
Chief Jimmy Williamson
This 2013 Ford F150 XL 4X4 truck serves the University of Georgia Police Department in its commitment of protecting and providing professional and dedicated public service to the University community. This vehicle gives officers, when necessary, the capability to operate under specialized and off-road conditions within our 817 acre community which is prone to North Georgia’s inclement weather changes. This vehicle is also used for towing our ATV and motorcycle fleet.
The reflective silver and black lettering displayed on the white surface of the vehicle is reminiscent of a classic patrol vehicle style characterized by simple lettering and clean lines. The Department transitioned to this design in 2010 to replace a paint scheme which had been in use for more than three decades.
The LED push bar, tow rings, and integrated red and blue LED grill-mounted strobe lights highlight the frontal view of this vehicle. From the rear, the large reflective lettering along with the integrated window and tag mounted red and blue LED lights aid in the vehicle’s high visibility during traffic stops and traffic direction details. The department’s website is featured prominently on the vehicle’s tailgate.
The interior cabin serves as a mobile office with a docking station, Toughbook laptop, forward and rear-facing camera system, mobile camera, flashlight charger, and integrated rifle mount. A sealed bed-mounted truck box contains a fire extinguisher, tire deflation device, first-aid kit, emergency blanket, traffic cones, crime scene tape, and a mobile print kit which our officers utilize on a frequent basis.
