Police cars like the 2016 Dodge Charger Pursuit come packed with even more goodies than the regular production counterparts you can find at Rothrock CDJR, but all that technology has its downsides.
Police officers need to do computer work in their cruisers, traditionally done through a laptop attached on the dash or console. These are sometimes on swivel bases, but usually are fixed in place. This can cause major distractions while driving and also prevent the passenger-side airbag from functioning properly, which can put a second officer at risk.
Dodge worked with the Los Angeles Police Department to fix all that in the 2016 Dodge Charger Pursuit. Instead of letting a cumbersome laptop get in the way, the automaker moved it and just about all other extraneous equipment, like the radio unit, in the trunk.

It then expanded its Uconnect screen to a massive 12.1 inches and placed a keyboard on the center console. It also made it possible to connect a keyboard via USB or Bluetooth. The Uconnect screen lets the officer control everything he would normally use, from the camera and siren to his phone and light bar.
It’s good to see Dodge making sure that police officers are safe!
