Charger Pursuit gets anti-ambush gear

by David Zatz on

Starting today, the 2017 Dodge Charger Pursuit police cars will be able to detect movement behind the car with a rear-facing camera and radar. The technology, provided by InterMotive, is designed to prevent officers from being ambushed from the rear while parked.”

The package uses the Charger Pursuit’s ParkSense rear parking systems to alert officers if anyone is behind the vehicle. It is installed simply by plugging it into the OBDII port and securing it under the dash, and is activated by the Aux 1 button.

When the “Officer Protection Package” is active, the reverse sensors are turned on; if any are tripped, it sounds a chime so the officer can look to the camera. It also locks the doors, rolls up the front windows, and flashes the tail lights.
