PHOTOS: The Brick Township Police Department will not only have a new style police car, but a new look for 2013. The Brick Township Police Department has chosen to outfit their patrol officer with the Dodge Charger Pursuit, similar to the new LPD vehicles.
Patrol Division is going retro by using Dodge again – the last time a Dodge was in the patrol fleet was in 1989 with the Dodge Diplomat.
With a new vehicle comes a new paint scheme. Brick Police is again going retro with the classic look of the Black and White police car. Designed by Officer Scott Dierking (pictured), the paint scheme was chosen out of thirty submitted designs.
Last spring, the Brick Township Police Department rolled out its last Crown Victoria and began planning to convert the fleet over to the new model of patrol vehicles. For over a year, a committee of Brick Township Police Officers began the process of selecting the new vehicle to replace the out-going Ford Crown Victoria. They researched and tested several vehicles before making a recommendation. The final decision was based on many factors, including handling and performance, but one of the most important was the vehicle’s safety rating.
The Dodge Charger Pursuit received the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s highest safety rating. The committee’s research showed that the Dodge Chargers performance and handling would best serve the citizens of Brick and the Chargers safety rating and features will keep the officers safe.
Consideration was also given to the vehicle’s impressive specifications. Not only does the Charger add interior room compared to the Crown Victoria’s but the Dodge Charger Pursuit has the cylinder deactivation system that reduces the engine to four cylinders. This feature increases fuel economy while the officers are on patrol. [TLS].
Nice csrs..Cant wait to see them out and about…Nice Job Brick PD
And we get nothing here in Lakewood but the same old fords yet we are the most populated county
the chargers nice cars and may be safer. However they have weak transmissions and are cheapley built.
Well maybe if we didn’t spend so much on busing or special forces over time inspecting suspicious bags at least once each week we would have funds available for police or fire.
To # 3. They may be cheaply built cars, however it looks like your are poorly educated due to your lack of proper spelling on elementary school words.
FYI,our very own LPD just acquired 2 of these new cars as well, so stop complaining that Lakewood only has old Ford’s
