Police cars are outfitted with all kinds of crazy shit—push bumpers, onboard computers, and various cameras to name a few things—and all of that stuff is installed aftermarket. Cop shops transform ordinary Chevy Tahoes into terrifying beasts. The Sheriff’s Office in Placer County, California, does all of the retrofitting in four days. Here are those four days condensed into five minutes.

The Tahoe gets the sheriff’s badge, new tires, a lightbar, sundry electrical improvements, an extremely hard new rear seat, and a whole lot of other stuff.

I think my favorite part is near the end, when the camera seems to go limp. Job done.


These cars aren’t cheap, with the 2018 Chevy Tahoe police model starting at $42,830, with Chevy emphasizing its interior passenger space, which comes out to 120.7 cubic feet. Useful for arresting a lot of people, I suppose.
