Anyone else see the Texas police cruiser around Zurich?

About a year ago I was walking home from a tram stop and saw a car that made me do a double take - something wasn't right. I looked back and realized it was a Texas Department of Safety cruiser. Then I remembered I was in Switzerland.

Being from Texas, I wanted to high-five this guy - who is he!? How did he import this thing!? Looks like he's from the San Antonio area, at least. It has original Texas Exempt plates with the ZH plates on top hahaha. Absolute legend.

I've seen it 3 or 4 times since then and it's a pleasure every time.

I saw it in Wadenswil in November and did a double take! I'm also from Texas and had to mentally shake myself for a moment.

See them all the time around Oerlikon. Parked round the square near the Bhf and a couple of times on Wehntalerstr.

I actually thought it was just decorative stickers, but I think I see emergency lights on the dash ?

Not the same car I think, but I saw a US patrol car parked outside a local American style diner. We were driving past, so I didn't clock the details.
