Dodge unveiled their new 2016 Dodge Charger Pursuit today and it will be providing law enforcement with access to top of the line tech to help them out.
While the cops won’t be getting a Hellcat, they will be getting a new Dodge Charger designed to give them all the support they can use. The biggest feature is an all-new laptop size 12.1-inch touchscreen display. This will allow the police access to dispatch software, radio, and camera on a screen that can provide a 1024 by 768 pixel display.
Even better for the police officers who will be using this is that the 12.1-inch touchscreen is meant to cut down on the amount of clutter in the front of the police car. The visual of the massive laptop sitting out in the front seat is going away. The Uconnect 12.1 allows the officer to have a plug-and-play solution to their mobile computer. They will now be able to store that in the trunk of the Charger Pursuit, keeping the front of the car less populated with equipment.
The display has even been designed to work with gloves and in more extreme weather conditions, such as a sweltering summer or a harsh winter.
All of these upgrades were made with the help of a 19-member Police Advisory Board. Dodge and the board worked hand-in-hand to design a new system that could benefit the officers using it. One of the biggest complaints they sought to answer was to decrease the risk of an officer’s life in a collision by reducing the amount of equipment in the front seat, hence the use of the trunk for clearing out the clutter.
