The incredible shrinking squad car
Patrol vehicles seem to be getting smaller and smaller. Do cops have enough space?
At a time when it seems that officers are getting bigger and bigger in physical stature, the compartment they occupy in their patrol vehicles keeps getting smaller and smaller. The vehicles themselves are in many cases smaller than the trusty old Crown Vics of old, and they're being stuffed with an ever-increasing amount of aftermarket equipment like MDTs.
In this podcast segment, Jim and Doug discuss this trend and debate the merits of looking at going to more SUVs that will allow for those hefty cops to be more comfortable behind the wheel.
