Dodge at LA police car tests

by David Zatz on

Norm Layton was present at the Los Angeles county sheriffs’ police car tests, held earlier today. The Dodge Charger was present for pursuit testing, while the Dodge Special Service Ram was available only for inspection.

Norm wrote that “The lap times by visual calculation were nearly identical,” with the Dodge having a slight edge, as it did in Michigan. The testing is held in conjunction with the annual Cops West Convention. Results are compiled and released at a later date, but police and sheriff’s departments have procurement people on hand who conduct their own evaluation and testing, for the selection of the next year’s police vehicles.
