Very cool, thanks for sharing!

If I were a police officer driving the Dodge or Police Interceptor, I'd certainly think twice before using 'physical' means to end a car chase! Those cars are beautiful!

The new Mustang police cars today look way better then that ford, of course they took the idea from Transformers..
Well it might be a Dodge, or even both don't remember exactly..

The city I live in uses these:

It's still advertising dodge isn't it? I presume not all dodges have a large shield motif on their doors incorporating "police" and the dodge ram.

edit: it's just odd to see for someone not used to such egregious advertising.
I wonder if it was part of a deal, cops get the cars at a very very discounted rate if they display that big ass logo.

We had this some time ago - funny thing.



And of course the classic.



Today the german police is mostly riding around in vw passat. Some citys use bmw 5 series and mercedes e-class - luxurious but pointless if you ask me. but what can u do



*better than the british with their vauxhall astra :p*

And for highspeed chases:

Might just be Dodge's way of advertising they have a police model. I'm sure there are police conventions where you can go see the latest in police gear. Shrug.
