Fiat Chrysler has enhanced the capabilities of its Officer Protection Package that increases an officer's situational awareness when parked and working inside the 2018 Dodge Charger Pursuit law enforcement sedan, the automaker has announced.

 

“The Officer Protection Package is the result of our continued focus on officer safety in our Charger Pursuit,” said Jeff Kommor, vice president of U.S. sales operations, fleet and small business sales. “With critical input and guidance from our Police Advisory Board, we have enhanced the technology’s capabilities for the 2018 model year with additional sensors to provide officers with an expanded field of protection.”

 

FCA US first offered the package on the 2017 Charger Pursuit under a partership with Auburn, Calif.-based InterMotive, Inc., which provides a module that enables the package's features. The Surveillance Mode Module enables FCA’s ParkSense rear park assist system, ParkView rear backup camera, and Rear Cross Path detection to alert officers when movement at the rear of the vehicle is detected.

The Rear Cross Path detection is new to the package for the 2018 model year. This system warns drivers of lateral traffic when backing out of parking spaces. When InterMotive’s module is activated – by pressing the Aux 1 button on the steering wheel – these additional sensors will be turned on, which increases the area monitored.

 

If the sensors detect motion, a chime will sound to alert the officer of potential danger in the area. The officer can see what's behind the vehicle via the camera monitor. At the discretion of the law enforcement agency, the tripped sensors can initiate a signal for the doors to lock, front windows to roll up, reverse lights to turn on or tail lights to flash.

 

The Officer Protection Package can be easily installed and is available now at no cost to U.S. law enforcement agencies.
