Nassau Police Vehicles

Most Nassau RMPs have the short UHF antenna as well as the data antenna on the back but I have seen a few RMPs with 4 whip antennas like the car in this video -

Is this strictly a highway patrol thing?
The multiple antennas are for interop i would guess but if anyone has more info its appreciated

The four antennas are for LoJack. Other NCPD RMPs besides Highway Patrol also have them.

Lojack thats interesting - yes i have seen that antenna setup on some other NCPD vehicles besides highway patrol
Some but not all

While on the subject - anyone know what units are these 14xx# vans?
Saw a few of these on the road recently but I dont think they are crime scene vans - crime scene units i think are 1001-1005
The closest numbers i have to 14xx is 13xx which i have down as "crime resistance units"

Another interesting find - RMP 1952
On my list of NCPD units i have 19xx down as "Civil Preparedness Unit" but i havent been able to find any info about such a unit
I would guess perhaps something to do with/attached to OEM
Obviously the pic is outdated so maybe it is now defunct and my list is probably not 100% up to speed

Also interesting to see a Sheriffs van(27xx) but with NCPD markings
Again an old pic so things could certainly have changed by now

Interesting - thanks for the input
Yes the car pictured is not a typical patrol car as it does not appear to have a cage in the back
However that car is around 25 years old

The list i have is actually blank from 15xx to 191x but i have never seen NCPD vehicles with numbers in that range
