As a member of the Texas Rangers from 1966 to 1993, Joaquin Jackson watched the evolution of the law enforcement agency into a modern outfit.

Building a Better Patrol Car: Carbon Motors E7

July 16, 2009 | Editor's Corner

The Carbon Motors E7 prototype patrol vehicle looks something like a cross between an exotic sports car and a prop vehicle from a science fiction film. As collaboration between law enforcement officers and forward-thinking auto executives, the car is scheduled to be produced in 2012. A 3.0-liter clean-diesel engine powers a vehicle the company says may deliver 300 hp. Listen to our interview with Stacy Dean Stephens, the former Texas patrol officer who envisioned the car.

July 10, 2009 | Editor's Corner
