Revere Beach Station, 1960s: Commit No Nuisance!!!
Nope but I have had the lap top swing and jam into the steering wheel on a couple of times. Not fun !!!!!!!!
or when you take a corner thinking it's locked and it slams into your elbow. OUCH.

Is that a Mount Prospect IL Police car on the right? I hear you can buy the old ones at an auction.
They got cop tires, cop bumpers and where made before catalytic converters so they run great on leaded gas.
They come equiped with S.C.M.O.D.S!

This mall has everything...
I recall right after the 'merge' seeing a fleet of all white cars with MSP decals on the side. I curse that day since I didn't have a camera handy.
I put 'merge' in quotes since it was more of a swallowing than a merge. Nothing like taking your driver's test from a uniformed man with a gun.
"Take this left."
Very cool uniforms too. With all due respect to the MSP, DAMN YOU WELD!
I was offered, and accepted, the RMV Police job back in 1990, but then all hiring was frozen when the merger bill was filed. I was a BHA cop at the time, but HUD funding was cut and layoff rumors were circulating.
So there was a possibility you could have been a Registry cop and then merged into the MSP. and all these years later after Al Gore invented the Internet, what would your screen name on Mass cops been instead of Delta 784?
I still would have gone to my current job, so it would be the same, even though I'm now Delta 783 (re-districted the sectors a few years ago).
There you have a WORST CASE SCENARIO if there ever was one. I went to the academy with a guy from Southbridge who's only goal in life was to be a Registry cop. He graduated and within a couple of years, BANGO, he was RMV.
And all the troopers of a certain age had the initials R.T. for a while...
That was ridiculous.
The whole thing was retarded
I actually had zero desire to be a Registry cop (traffic enforcement has never been my thing, and giving road tests to angst-ridden teenagers isn't my idea of fun, either), but according to the rumors, I was getting laid-off from the BHA yesterday (I never was), so I was looking for a more stable job. I had taken the RMV exam before BHA hired me, back when I applied for/tested for EVERY police job under the sun.
When I was a BHA cop, the Registry Police would come into Roxbury and Mattapan to hammer traffic enforcement, so the Boston cops wouldn't have to worry about it. When the traffic docket at Roxbury or West Roxbury Court was 5+ pages, you knew the Registry cops had been out.
I remember some badge bunny telling me about the closing ceremony at the Fells MDC station. I just remember no one was happy with the whole thing. Too much drama from all sides, and now it seems all but forgotten.
