2018 Dodge Charger Pursuit Can Save Officers From A Rear Ambush

Police

You can never be too careful these days.

Automakers, specifically GM, Ford and FCA, continuously work to find ways to improve their police department vehicles, and FCA has just announced a pretty cool upgrade for the 2018 Dodge Charger Pursuit. The new Officer Protection Package, according to the automaker, "is designed to increase an officer’s situational awareness when parked and working inside the Charger Pursuit." Here’s how it works:

The InterMotive’s Surveillance Mode Module with FCA’s Fleet Safety Group technology – ParkSense rear park assist system, ParkView rear backup camera, and Rear Cross Path detection – to alert officers when movement at the rear of the vehicle is detected. What’s new for 2018 is the Rear Cross Path detection, a system that warns drivers of lateral traffic when backing out of parking spaces. When the InterMotive’s module is activated, additional sensors will turn on, resulting in an increase of the area monitored. It will also provide additional security for the officer inside the vehicle. When the sensors detect motion, there’ll be a chime sound to alert the officer, who can also immediately see what’s behind the vehicle through a monitor.

A tripped sensor is capable of initiating a signal for doors to lock, front windows to roll up, reverse lights to turn on, and tail lights to flash. This sensor system is quite similar to what Ford has done with its own lineup of police pursuit vehicles, and we’re sure our nation’s law enforcement appreciates its value.
