The Cops appear in most games in the Carmageddon series, although they take various different forms. They lie in wait on many levels, but will wake up, turn on their sirens and come after the player if they see him/her doing something illegal. Considering competitors generally race around at high speed, smacking into other cars and running through zombie/human crowds with impunity, this could be often. These cops don't just pull the player over and write a ticket though - they try to batter him/her to death!

  • The Squad Car is one of only three vehicles in the whole series to have a ranged weapon (the others are Da Panzer and the Suppressor); the minigun mounted on the left side. It can not be fired.
  • In earlier games when driven by the player, similar to the Suppressor, the Squad Car uses the engine sound associated with trucks, rather than the siren used when being driven by the AI.
  • The Carmageddon II Copcar is a 1990 Ford LTD Crown Victoria.
    • The police vehicle is an opponent, rather than a police vehicle. It can be bought like a regular car.
  • 12 cop cars have to be defeated in Carmageddon II mission The Bruise Brothers.
  • The Copcar is an obvious homage to The Blues Brothers' Bluesmobile. The description is taken verbatim from Elwood Blues (Dan Akroyd)'s description of the Bluesmobile in the movie.
    • Thirteen vehicles were used as Bluesmobiles in total for The Blues Brothers, most of which were destroyed during filming. Almost 60 police cars were also destroyed - the film held the world record for the most cars destroyed in one film, until it was surpassed by its own sequel.
  • The actual police vehicle in TDR 2000 changes in certain environments. The alternative police vehicles are Killa Kart (Hollowood), Thummper (Military Zone), and Enforcer (Back Of Beyond).
  • The default Cop Car in TDR 2000 is driven by the only female police officer in the series.
    • The same vehicle can also show up as an opponent. If defeated as one, it can be bought.
    • Unused driver descriptions in TDR2000 name the (female) CopCar driver as Harry Killahan. Along with the quote, it's an obvious reference to rogue lawman Harry Callahan from Dirty Harry.
  • In the original Carmageddon, the Squad Car is the only vehicle which can not be visually damaged (i.e. crushage) - the bodywork trashed powerup doesn't bend the bodywork. The only indications of its damage level are engine smoke and wobbly wheels.
    • In Funsize, the bodywork trashed pickup does affect the vehicle. Since Cops and Opponents can be affected by powerups, this can occur to Squad Cars when not driven by the player. Normal damage still doesn't deform the vehicle.
  • In Carmageddon, the Squad Car is not normally allowed to be an opponent or driven by the player (unlike the Suppressor, it's not stealworthy) which is why there is no sprite for the Squad Car in the Select grid position menu and instead a Red Eagle as a placeholder.
