Police Dogs

Law enforcement agencies typically purchase K-9s from trainers or dealers who acquire them from Europe, where legacy blood lines have been long established. Breeds most commonly used for detection and apprehension include the Belgian Malonois, German Shepherd, Dutch Shepherd, and a variety of Labradors. Dogs can be single purpose (for apprehensions) or dual purpose for apprehensions and detection for narcotics, explosives, or cadavers. Read "K-9 Training Challenges" for more detail.

In-Service Cop Cars: Chevrolet Caprice

Chevrolet returned to the patrol car market with its Caprice PPV, a smaller, more powerful Caprice than the mid-90s model. This new police-only Caprice has impressed agencies with its mix of agility, braking, and high-speed handling. View our gallery of in-service Chavrolet Caprice PPVs, and then read "The New Recruits: In-Service Cop Cars" for detailed stories of agencies using them.

In-Service Cop Cars: Dodge Charger Pursuit

In the the race to replace the Ford Crown Vic on patrol, the Dodge Charger Pursuit arguably had a leg up on the competition, because Chrysler introduced it in 2006 and has worked out some of the initial kinks in the transition from a retail to police vehicle. Agencies who buy Chargers enthuse about the muscular V-8 HEMI and aggresive styling. View our gallery of in-service Chargers, and then read "The New Recruits: In-Service Cop Cars" for detailed stories of agencies using them.

In-Service Cop Cars: Ford Police Interceptor Sedan

After retiring its venerable Crown Victoria Police Interceptor, Ford offered law enforcement agencies two choices—the Police Interceptor sedan and P.I. Utility. The vehicles provide a balance of fuel efficiency and power. View our gallery of in-service Ford Police Interceptor sedans, and then read "The New Recruits: In-Service Cop Cars" for detailed stories of agencies using them.

AEDEC International's Prisoner Transport System is available for both the Ford Police Interceptor Sedan and the Ford P.I. Utility. The backseat units provide a variety of means for securing prisoners, and are available with or without wiring channel adaptation. The Utility version offers a rear screen option to prevent prisoner access to the tools and weapons you have stored in your vehicle.

Vehicle Accessories: 2012

This has been a watershed year for law enforcement vehicles. Agencies have been taking delivery of four new models from Chevrolet, Dodge, and Ford. And each of those new models must now be equipped with the latest accessories designed specifically to fit them or enhance their performance as public safety vehicles. Here's a look at some cool new vehicle accessories that have caught the eyes of the POLICE Magazine staff in recent months.

Boston Motor Patrol

Boston celebrated two centennials in 2012—the building of Fenway Park for the Boston Red Sox and the founding of the Boston Police Department's motor unit, which is known as the Mobile Operations Patrol (MOP) unit. The two centennials came together on Sept. 16, when agency brass recognized the unit's heritage during a ceremony in front of Fenway's "green monster" wall in left field.
