    Wow. If I had a gun, and took people's money all day, I could afford a Viper too!

    You realize police officers don't actually get the money from your ticket, right?
    Most jurisdictions have at least one fast car for high speed chases, in the 80's it was Foxbody Mustangs, nowadays it's usually Camaros. That's the only police Viper that I know of.

    Yes, I'd say a Police Viper qualifies as a "fast car."

    noo, they use the data connection side of the phone to send data back and forth of GPS location. no wi-fi. they are probably using mobile office kits with the laptops or maybe HAM. I would do some further investigation with wardriving around their cars in a known area and their station to see their usual SSID.

    the SSID of the station is cloaked. I know it's their... something about hacking a police station network just makes me feel kinda funny.

    It looks like the cops around here are using toshiba laptops that are on windows 2000.
    I bet i could get the software that retrieves plate info, but i guess you would still need whatever kind of Motorola wireless modem and logon credentials.

    I spent a year writing a program that controlled a cmos minature camera via 2 servos and a DSP (digital signal processor), so that I had a pan and tilt system and it tracked motion and also colour, depending on the users choice.
    However, it is very temperamental. Colour proved a good result, but due to lighting conditions the colours were not always seen as the same thing, and hence, were not tracked.
    In an ideal world, system would work a treat. In the real world, not much use unfortunately.
    However, was funny watchin a camera follow me across my room as i walked in/out..... great security cam:P

    Anyway, I thought the police hid away from view to catch speeding cars etc? Surely, if it is out of your view then it is out of the cameras view as well???

    Only way to track all police cars is to put a bug on em all, and get them up on a gps system.....

    Alternative solution: Drive within the law!
