A Fond Farewell

After 54+ years....



We are a family owned & operated small business located about 60 miles west of Chicago in Sycamore, IL.  We sell new & used vehicles, and outfit squad cars, firetrucks, ambulances, security vehicles, tow trucks, snowplows, etc.

Our company has many satisfied customers all over the United States that we have been doing business with for many years. The experience of being in the police industry for many years has helped us develop, what we think, is the best business available for customers needing police, fire, towing, or security related materials


October 2, 2023



To All Our Family, Friends, Customers, Vendors, Etc.,


We want to sincerely thank you for the relationship we have enjoyed with you over the years. We appreciate the confidence you placed in us, and are thankful beyond words for everything you have meant to us. For a small business to survive 54+ years is an incredible accomplishment, which simply would not have been possible without the patronage and support we have received from you.

Over the last 54 years, we have been able to serve:

  • Federal, State, County, and Local Agencies 

  • Private businesses; Security companies, Tow companies, Construction, Landscapers, Snow plow, Road escorts, Survey companies, Dealerships, etc.

  • Private Individuals, Our own Employees & their families

  • Our Family members, Friends, Friends of friends, Family members of friends


It is therefore with great sadness that we are writing today to let you know that we have decided to close Veto Enterprises. This decision was not an easy one but after the turmoil and uncertainty of the pandemic, and now with supply chain issues complicating even simple business functions, the time has come to say goodbye.

We will continue to handle the currently existing orders and/or projects, and will continue to take care of anything we can that may come up in the meantime.  That said, we cannot take any new orders of new vehicles and/or upfits at this point.  The office will remain open through the end of the year as we wind down operations to handle accounts payable/receivable, etc, but we will close to the public on or about November 30, 2023 (see our social media pages for the most up to date information).  PLEASE, we ask for your patience during this transition, this is proving to be a very difficult season for us all!

We are having a liquidation sale of any remaining inventory, so watch your email and/or our social media pages for the latest updates on this or give us a call to set up an appointment, or click here

About Us

​Veto Enterprises Incorporated was established in August of 1969 by Robert A. Veto. Bob started out in the law enforcement equipment field after being an officer. He kept in mind how little money most departments have to spend in order to purchase equipment, and he started what he calls "Creative Selling." He takes in all sorts of trade-ins on newer vehicles and/or equipment. This "Creative Selling" enables departments to purchase things they wouldn't have been able to with funds generated from auctions and such, which normally go into a general   fund. Airplanes, exotic cars, and even jail room novelties are just a few of the trades that have been taken in.  In 1992 his daughter, Tina joined the business, his son Craig started in 2000, and his daughter Sue, also works with us as time allows.  Bob's granddaughter, Amber also has recently joined our crew!

Today,  Veto Enterprises is still going strong for over 54 years! We are a family owned and operated business, and have been since the beginning. We serve customers all over the United States, Canada, and overseas. Our goal is to provide exceptional service and satisfaction to all of our customers.  Veto Enterprises is a One Stop shop!  



Our Services


​We professionally install all of our equipment (yours or ours) and have many supplies and equipment ready for sale without the hassle of waiting for parts to arrive.  Many satisfied customers rely on us time and time again because they know our expertise, and one-on-one service cannot be outdone.

  • Did you know - used police cars make excellent starter vehicles for teens!  They are very heavy duty & made to withstand the abuse a 1st time driver puts forth.

  • We are now a dropship point for Ford Motor Co - have your cars sent direct to us for install from the factory.
