AN “OFF THE WALL” IDEA
by Bob Bruce
Fleet Coordinator – Miramichi Police
At the Miramichi Police Force, each level of their three floor facility, has walls adorned with photographs of officer achievements, plaques received, and other items which proudly display their agency history.
Last year they added an archive display cabinet to their lobby. This cabinet contains items including old record ledgers, vintage equipment and other police memorabilia. For office tours, this cabinet contains vintage police lighting equipment which is wired on switches to allow young visitors to try the lights and sirens.
Now, what do you do when you have a spare police cruiser front cowl from a retired model year police vehicle? You gather up a few more spare parts, including a push bumper, rebuild it, and then you affix it to a front lobby wall.
This functional vehicle front end has working wig/wag head lights, LED’s and their IT guy is working on adding a series of recorded police radio calls for audio effects. Visiting children (young and old) cannot wait to try out the controls.
