Got an unmarked 14 plate ST estate just over a month ago.

Apart from the dash kit, blacked out rear windows and the concealed blues catching the daylight you'd not know it's job.

But then that's the general idea ;)

I spot all our unmarked coppers in my area as they are no longer unmarked having POLICE emblazoned on the sides and rear. Our Police Scotland have nearly every car and van a Ford ;)

the only way to identify an undercover car is to upset them and get them to turn the lights on :p alternatively if your in the right place at the right time with the sun in the right place, you might catch the lights reflecting the sun, but these days they have become experts at camoflauge.

Like I always say, It's not the coppers you see that you need to be worried about.

It's the ones you don't see ;)

Well there's no mystery with our unmarked vehicles up here, so easily spotted instead of being sly and attaching the blue lights behind the grille they instead attach them to the top of the reg plate making them very obvious. Also there's a light box on the parcel shelf that flashes "Police" and "Stop" and as you say if the sun reflects just right.... gotcha ;) lol

While we're on the subject of police cars, what's the purpose of those stickers on some vans saying 'police follow this vehicle'? A quick google just seems to bring up people's guesses, do you know the actual reason Clive?

It's used on cash in transit vehicles and such like.

It's an anti-hijack thing.

Suddenly your 1.8 Focus diesel feels very slow when you get back in it, - don't forget to rev the Petrol car over 4k and not the diesel! :lol:

But surely you don't always follow vans with that on? I've seen some that say only if it's being driven between certain hours, but for all the rest?!

These cash in transit vehicles are more likely tracked than followed. I.e an unscheduled stop would trigger police.. something like that. I'm sure the police have better things to do than follow every cash in transit vehicle unless it carries large amounts of money. But while we talk about this what about the G4S vehicle down south that was attacked not long ago carrying prisoners and some of their vehicles carry a "police follow this vehicle sticker" obviously not being followed in transport.
