    Saw this on Wikipedia. Is it true? The LAPD has a fleet of Tacomas?

    The Taco was made right in California, and Toyota is headquartered in Torrance... which may have influenced the LAPD's purchase decision.

    Judging by the non-smoked headlights, the truck is 2005-2008. The black looks like pure black, not BSP. The whole truck was probably repainted.

    That one was posted quite awhile ago. I think it's a community patrol/beach patrol one. So probably just a one of a kind, which is why they opted to upgrade to the Sport

    I'd love to have one of those spotlights on my truck. Never seen an 05+ with one, always wanted too though.


    Driving a police Taco must be fun.
