I have noticed while driving around that there are a significant number of guys that have repressed feelings of needing to be a law enforcement officer, but for some reason they were never allowed to carry a gun and perform in an official manner.
These guys then buy themselves a "cruiser" to drive and install fake antennas ( in multiples) and dual spot-lamps in the a-pillar. Their cars invariably have a "plain clothes" look, with steel wheels and larger tires.
When you encounter an Pheau-lice (pronounced Fo-leece) officer on the road, you slow down immediately until you sniff them out as being "pheaux".
I recently have encountered who I consider to be the Chief of Pheau-lice!
The Chief drives a mid-90's black Buick Skylark, with twin chrome spotlamps, 4 (!) apparently fake antennas on the trunk, and a new twist - an array of stick-on amber reflectors arranged across the front of the vehicle, which presents a very "official" look to the vehicle.
That is until you really get a good look at the car and, after a spell of riotous laughter, you realize that all this fellow can enforce is the display of bad taste and the need to be somehow "official".
I will strive to get pictures of the Pheau-lice officers in my area to post here, and if you are able to capture one in your area, I would be amused to see your picture.
