The GCPD Squad Car of the Gotham City Police Department began life as a muscle car from the 1970's, restored and repaired to keep up with modern day cars.
Due to the rampant corruption within the department, the GCPD has little money to spend on buying new equipment and so instead turn their hands to fixing and modifying equipment they've had for 20 years.
- When designing the Squad Car, Chuck Dee reasoned that, "Instead of doing the typical 'Mobster' car we typically see in Gotham, I wanted to do muscle cars from the 70's instead... mean 'gas guzzlers' that came straight out of MadMax or any Dirty Harry or Charles Bronson movie.... these cars aren't meant to be pretty, BUT muscular and scary as they chase ur a$$!"
- When uniformed police offers communicate over police band radios, there are many codes and abbreviations used to describe a situation. Codes may vary by jurisdiction, but some basics remain the same; 10-4 means "Okay", 10-20 gives a location, 10-24 means "emergency at station-all units returns", 10-108 means "officer down" or "officer needs assistance", 100 means a "hit and run", 148 is for "resisting arrest", 187 is a "homicide", 13 is for "major disaster activation", and 13, 77 CAPES means "metahuman altercation in densely populated civilian area, call for immediate evacuation".
