Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has proudly announced their 10,000th Dodge Officer Protection Package has been shipped, greatly improving the abilities of law enforcement to do their jobs. The Dodge Charger Pursuit police sedan with the additional package is a joint collaboration between FCA US LLC and InterMotive, Inc., and has reshaped what is possible to thwart crime with InterMotive surveillance technology and the help of the power and speed of Dodge engineering. FCA’s Fleet Safety Group technology also plays a large role in protecting officers with the help of the ParkSense rear park assist system and ParkView rear backup camera, both of which work together to inform officers when movement is detected behind the vehicle.  

“The Officer Protection Package is the latest layer of safety to be built into our Charger Pursuit.We knew it was the right thing to do for all the men and women who protect us on a daily basis, and we are gratified to know that over 10,000 of these heroes now have a better chance of avoiding rear ambush occurrences. I’m also pleased to announce that we will continue to offer this package free of charge on our 2019 model-year Dodge Charger Pursuits,” said Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Car Brands, Dodge//SRT, Chrysler and FIAT – FCA North America.

How the System Works

FCA developed a smart and sensitive system that can readily detect movement and signals officers who are sitting in their cruisers of potential danger. The officer can immediately view what is behind the vehicle with the help of the live camera monitor. Once the sensors are tripped, law enforcement can choose to lock all doors, automatically raise the front windows, turn the rear lights turn on and flash all taillights. This all protects the law officer and provides critical extra seconds to assess and react to the situation happening near them. This will help prevent potential ambush attacks on officers.
