A 13-year-old Dillon, S.C., boy has been arrested after officers say he did some patrolling of his own in a stolen police car.
Dillon Police Sgt. Jason Turner told the Morning News of Florence that officers didn't even know the car was missing until residents reported seeing the boy driving it Sunday. The boy had done the same thing the previous Sunday, Turner said.
Factory-installed Police Perimeter Aler uses sensors to monitor an approximately 270-degree area around the vehicle. It detects nearby movement to alert officers of any suspicious activity. When such motion is detected, the system automatically turns on the rear camera, sounds a chime, rolls up the windows, and locks the doors.
