Vehicle Fleet

In the course of routine patrol, the Rome Police Department relies on the use of a number of specific vehicle models and makes. The department utilizes Ford Police Taurus, Ford Explorers, a Ford F-150, and Dodge Chargers as the primary patrol vehicles. Patrol vehicles are equipped with radar, mobile data terminals (MDTs), and other emergency-related equipment.

In 2014, the Rome Police Department added the VIPER to its fleet. The VIPER is an armored vehicle equipped with surveillance cameras capable of streaming live video back to headquarters and to officers on the street. The VIPER is placed at various trouble spots throughout the city in an effort to curb quality-of-life issues. In 2018, a new Harley Davidson Road King motorcycle was added to the fleet. It is utilized for traffic enforcement and community events.
