When Chicago Police Supt. Jody Weis stepped in front of reporters and news cameras and blamed the parents of 8-year-old Josue Torres for his shooting, a few jaws in the public-relations world may have dropped.
The approach of blaming the parents while their child was still in intensive care with two gunshot wounds was received by some as harshly insensitive.
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.
