The Exterminator

Sheriff’s Department Introduces “The Exterminator” to Shame Suspects

Belleville, Ill. – The St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department has an innovative, low-budget way to fight crime. Park an unmanned, rebuilt armored truck, complete with video cameras, digital recorders and live streaming video, in front of the dwellings of troublemakers.

We call it, “The Exterminator,” a 12,000 pound former armored truck donated to the Sheriff’s Department by Garda Cash Logistics, one of the nation’s largest armored car companies, through its Law Enforcement Partnership program.

Over the past year our truck received a total makeover. The Exterminator has a re-built engine and suspension, new paint and graphics, tires filled with hard foam that won’t go flat, infrared surveillance cameras, a padlocked hood, a locked gas cap, and protective screens over the head and tail lights. Video from the four cameras is streamed live to computers at the Sheriff’s Department. Investigators can even see live video on their smart phones!

All of the work was donated by corporate partners. The corporate partners who made “The Exterminator” possible are:

Garda Cash Logistics
Interface Security Systems
Signs ‘N’ Such
Kelso Auto Body

The Exterminator is not an undercover vehicle; it’s deigned to be highly visible. It sends a message. We will not tolerate drug trafficking, littered lawns, loud noise and other neighborhood nuisances. If you can’t live peacefully with your neighbors – we will send “The Exterminator!”

The Exterminator will make its first public appearance on:
