Default K-9 Trooper with 6 digit license plate.

Yesterday, I was traveling on RT 81 about 5 - 10 miles north of RT 90 when I was passed by a NYS Trooper. It was a typical blue SUV style vehicle with the NYSP seal on the door and the K-9
decal on the lefthand tailgate. The plate was 113538 has anyone else seen this?

Sure it wasn't NYS corrections? They have k-9 units and there seal is similar to NYSP and the use the regular state plates with year and state number

I did not get a good look at the seal so maybe it is corrections. Thanks.

I have also seen one of these vehicles in the Albany area. The paint style was the same as NYSP, but the seal on the door was not quite the same; it was considerably smaller than the typical NYSP seal. Unfortunately, I could not get a good look at the seal itself, but it did have the 'typical' New York State plate and not a Troop plate.

Those are corrections vans. As MTNRider said, the first two digits are the year of the vehicle. NYSP usually has their troop incorporated in the plate number

Typical plate number for a NYSP car in the area would be something like 2D70.

NY State Police Troop D - The RadioReference Wiki

(List isn't 100% right, but it gives you a good idea.)

Might be NYS Corrections. Similar blue vehicle and markings, except for the Corrections Seal and a CODE3 lightbar instead of a FS Vista or Whelen Freedom. Have seen at a local emergency vehicle outfitter for repairs.

NYS Dept of Corrections do have SUVs that look similar to NYSP markings the difference being the door seal and its doesn't say trooper. The Corrections K9 officers drive this vehicle

I had one of those vans pass me on I-81 Southbound between Watertown and Syracuse returning from vacation to Canada in July. It had the 'NYS Correctional Services' seal on the door. Yes, very similar to NYSP seal and smaller. It also had the 6 digit license plate on the back when it went by me.
