    I don't know I'm impartial I think. Thats kinda cool how the light bars are built into the frame though.

    that appears to actually be a well thought out design that takes into account issues with using stock vehicles

    the lights along the roofline are most likely EL (electro luminescent) film

    I like the handy shotgun/AR-15 holders. I should install one in my car.

    They did, but they have since discontinued it.

    Dodge has the Charger, and its a pretty bad arsed car, but its a little small in the passenger compartment. Thats why a lot of departments wont go with Dodge.

    Chevy has done nothing but produce crap for the police market.

    I take that back... GM has put out a pretty nice Tahoe police package.

    Some interesting ideas for the back doors (and back seats). However, back seats might make a hog tie situation harder.

    I think that's pretty sexy, although I've seen some TV shows (COPS is funny ok, yes yes, I understand much of it is "How to be a dead cop", but still funny) where they hog tie the guy up like Thanis said and that would be hard.

    Other than that, I think you guys deserve the very best we can give you. Thanks for the service! BTW, when you get here, I'll be the clean cut normal looking guy with the holstered weapon standing over the scum bag approaching room temperature, please don't shoot :-D

    Not as much room in back to place the perp. Designed more for an up right sitting IMO.

    Oh... the old fashioned as seen on TV hog tie went away a few years ago after a few excited delirium deaths. Most every PD that I know of uses a hobble system to "hog tie".
