I nickname given to a vehicle police use to transport prisoners. The name came from the New York Draft riots of 1863. The Irish at the time were the poorest people in the city. When the draft was implemented it had a provision for wealthier people to buy a waiver. The Irish rioted, and the term Paddy wagon was coined.

The van driven by the police, to pick up unruly teens out getting drunk in public places, after the town curfew, used to bring the teens to the police station, usually for the night.

means P. D. Wagon
modern: [Van] or [truck] used for transporting prisoners.
Origins of the phrase are not sinister. The origin is from the era of horse drawn box enclosed wagons employed by the Police Department, especially of New York City. These wagons had the sole identification painted on the sides, in large letters the initials P.D. When spoken the term P.D. Wagon easily becomes Paddy wagon.
While the word [Paddy] may be in modern use in derogatory ways, the development of those meanings are separate and unrelated to the [P. D. Wagon].
These derogatory uses however, have led to fabricated, invented and much more complicated explanations of the phrase Paddy wagon and while a word or phrase may develop new meanings over time, and thus become valid of themselves, that does not change the true and simple origin as a slurring of the phrase P.D. Wagon
