It’s a Security car that looks like a Police Unit.

Note: To protect high profile clients, e.g., Athletes, Entertainers, Politicians, District Attorneys, Judges, etc., we never share photos of undisclosed locations.
Because they look like Cop Cars, of course! But let’s consider the underlying principles that make this tactic work.
In our society, we are conditioned to have a physical response when we see a marked Police vehicle. Chances are you’ve noticed your body’s automatic reaction when you’ve seen a Police car at an intersection or in your rear-view mirror! Your heart skips a beat as you immediately check your speed and move your foot toward the brake pedal.
Now apply that concept to potential criminals. When they see a Police car – or a Decoy Cop Car that looks like a Police car – the instinctual reaction is to go the other way! Because criminals look for easy targets, just the glimpse of a Decoy Cop Car on your property sends the immediate signal to avoid trouble and move on.
Law Enforcement Agencies have long used decoy Police cars as Standard Operating Procedure – because it works! It is common practice to park a Police Unit on a busy street in order to prevent speeding. The split-second sighting of a cop car slows down traffic. Similarly, you may see a Police or Sheriff Unit parked in front of a bank. Whether or not an Officer or Deputy is in the car or the bank, a would-be robber will assume Law Enforcement is on-site and keep driving.
Whether you have retail, commercial, industrial, or personal property, we can provide DECOY COP CARS to PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY!
The model of Decoy Cop Car used depends on the property, the job detail, and the customer. Not all customers want a traditional Black & White patrol car, which is why we offer optional vehicles. Our fleet currently consists of:
- All-Black Crown Victoria Police Interceptor
- All-White Ford Crown Victoria
- All-White Ford Explorer
- Black & White Crown Victoria Police Interceptor
- Black & White Ford Explorer Police Model
Our Decoy Cop Cars are attended to regularly while parked at the client’s business or residence. Uniformed Security Patrol Officers randomly check on our Decoy Cop Cars and move them to different places on the property where feasible. The vehicles are also washed regularly, as often as necessary, in order to maintain a professional appearance. The combined strategy helps promote the impression that a Patrol Officer is on-site. Because our company currently operates primarily in Southern California, most of the Police Decoy vehicles we use are Black & White, to mimic the color scheme most often used by Law Enforcement in this region. Aimed at nationwide expansion, we have some accounts in other California regions and neighboring states. In these cases, including some local municipalities that do not use the typical Black & White model, we provide a Decoy Cop Car that matches the color scheme of the Police Units used in the respective jurisdiction.
As shown in the Photos, our Decoy Cop Cars have a HUNTER PATROL logo which may be modified to resemble regional Police vehicles. Using a logo and descriptive type completes the package of a decoy police Unit. Obviously, we cannot use our Company name – if we pasted Decoy Cop Car on the doors, it would defeat the purpose. Unless we are employing the Undercover look, our vehicles are designed to look like Police cars which always have decals and descriptors. Contact Decoy Cop Cars to discuss options and pricing.
